Zoo
“Prague Zoo is a Zoo in Prague, Czech Republic. It was opened in 1931 with the goal to "advance the study of zoology, protect wildlife, and educate the public" in the district of Troja in the north of Prague. In 2013, the Zoo occupied a total of 58 hectares (140 acres) with 45 hectares (110 acres) in use for exhibits and housed about 4,200 animals that represented almost 650 species, including 132 species listed as threatened.

Museum
“At the edge of the Letná park, in front of the National Technical Museum, stands the oldest floored carousel in Europe. The National Technical Museum is planning to restore the carousel's structural parts in the immediate future, which, however, will not be enough to restore the carousel to a fully functioning state. Therefore, a cooperative project between the district of Prague 7, the National Technical Museum and other nearby institutions has been formed to plan the restoration of the remaining portions, and return the carousel to fully functional status in the near future. This initiative is open to sponsorship by the public, that is, to anyone wishing to help restore the Letná carousel.”

American Restaurant

“Welcome to the original American restaurant (or should we say “Diner”), that is located in the centre of Prague near the Old Town Square. Our restaurant is themed with authentic US diner style furniture which is inspired by Chevrolet Bel Air’s armchairs from 1952. Immediately on entrance you will notice the monumental hand-made, 60 piece ceramic columns (mosaic) of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe. These artistic masterpieces took 3 months to create. Let’s go back to the 50s! With jukeboxes, images of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean, our staff dressed in retro clothes, good food and music. Read more on the next slider.”

Street Art
“Once a normal wall, since the 1980s it has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles' songs. Located in a small and secluded square across from the French Embassy, the wall received its first such decoration following the 1980 assassination of John Lennon when an unknown artist painted a single image of the singer-songwriter and some lyrics.”

Hockey Rink
“Riegrovy sady is a pleasant park stretching between the Italská, Chopinova, Polská, and Vozová streets on the northern edge of Vinohrady, at the border with Žižkov. It is close to walk to from Vinohradská and Slavíkova streets and from the Jiřího z Poděbrad Square. The park is named after 19th-century Czech politician František Ladislav Rieger whose statue is the work of Josef Václav Myslbek from 1913. Riegrovy sady was established in 1904 - 1908 as an English-style public garden and included a popular observation terrace, which has since deteriorated and is not in use. You can take a stroll, give your dog a good run or have a pint of fresh Gambrinus beer in the large and very popular "pub””

Jazz Club

“This modern club sits right on the banks of the Vltava below the Janáčkovo nábřeží waterfront area, providing unique scenery. The variability of the interior space allows them to host both intimate concerts and larger scale productions. Jazz Dock emphasizes the diversity of genres, both the classical and new music streams of jazz and blues. ”
