Future face of Prague-Letna

New building of the National Library in Prague Prague’s area Letna, situated on the left bank of the Vltava River near Cechuv Bridge, will probably change radically. First of all there will be the new and rather controversial building of the National Library designed by Jan Kaplicky, probably open for visitors in 2011. Sparta stadium will be replaced by National stadium designated for football matches and music concerts with the capacity of 40,000 seats. It will be open probably in 2010.

Another attraction in Prague, placed in Letna, will be a large ocenarium with more than 800 sea species including sharks and rays. It will be finished 2009 – 2010. Letna will also have a tunnel Blanka improving the transport in the city. The tunnel will be finished in 2011.

Letna’s history and development so far can be seen in the new exhibition in the Architectures’ Hall in the Old Town City Hall in Old Town Square. The exhibition is open from Tuesday to Sunday 9:00 – 17:00 and on Monday 11:00 – 17:00. There is no entrance fee.
