Ice skating rinks opening in Prague for the 2019/20 season

Public and private ice rinks will be available in many Prague districts throughout the winter

Skating rinks are opening across Prague for the winter season. Most offer skate rentals, and some have refreshments and other amenities. The most popular rinks are at the big field at Letná Park in Prague 7. Those two are also free, as is the rink at Ovocný trh, near Old Town Square.

The hours can be a bit tricky as many close for half-hour or hour blocks during the day to maintain the ice. Also, there are special events planned and different hours for holidays, so it is best to check the schedule before going.

The rinks at Letná, sponsored by the city, are in its fourth year. A large 40 x 20 meter rink is for general sports enthusiasts, while a smaller 22 x 10 meter rink is for children. There will be a large heated heated tent, a heated dressing room, and refreshments.

The opening ceremony for the Letná rinks is on November 29 at 4 pm. “I’m glad that this year we continue this popular project and I look forward to meeting visitors at the opening ceremony, where we will see a figure skating performance and an exhibition match of para hockey players,” Prague City Councior Vít Šimral said.
