The Olympic Village Sochi - Letná 2014
The Village will provide entertainment for those who don't want to watch the Games at home
With The Winter Olympic Games in Sochi just around the corner, it's about time to think about where to watch them! One place you can truly experience the Olympic atmosphere will be in the Letná Park in Prague 7. A large sports park with a skating rink, a hockey rink, cross-country skiing and biathlon tracks, a curling rink, a snowpark and a Fun zone for kids will be open there for two weeks.
Apart from excercising, you can also watch a live broadcast of the Sochi games. There will also be other events, like concerts, hockey matches and meet-and-greets with athletes. Check out the daily schedule here (sadly in Czech only).
The equipment will be available for rent in the park.
Visitors can refresh at one of the many food stands. It is also possible to bring snacks and drinks from outside of the park, but bringing alcohol is not permitted.
The opening event will take place on Thursday, February 6th at 18:00 and The Olympic Village will stay open till February 23rd.
The all-day pass costs 50 CZK for people over the age of 15. The entrance fee for children under 15 is for free. The tickets will be sold at the door of The Olympic Village or in advance through the Ticketpro network.
Smartphone owners can download the "Letná 2014" app and get one free ticket every day.
February 6th: 16:00 - 22:00
February 7th - 23rd: 9:00 - 22:00
Note: It is always better to look at the daily schedule to check for special programme and availability.
HOW TO GET THERE
The organizers strongly suggest that visitors use the public transportation to avoid traffic jams. The tram stops closest to the park are Chotkovy sady, Sparta and Čechův most or the metro stop Hradčanská.
