park with a view

Letenske Sady / Prague, Czech Republic
Just underneath Prague Castle, there is a sloping hill that goes from one park-like garden to another. The biggest of these gardens is Letenske Sady. This is a view from the park looking out over Old Town Prague and the River Vltava. Under the Communists, the park was used mainly for May Day parades, and once housed the largest statue of Stalin in the world before it was blown up in 1962.
