The now-destroyed Stalin monument that stood at the site

The Metronome is a giant, functional metronome in Letná Park, overlooking the Vltava River and the city center of Prague. It was erected in 1991, on the plinth left vacant by the destruction in 1962 of an enormous monument to former Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. The Template:Convert Metronome is now mostly a scenic vista and a meeting place for young people. It was designed by international artist Vratislav Novak.

The area behind the metronome is also a popular skatespot where skateboarders from Europe and around the world congregate and film throughout the year.
