Skating rinks starting to open

Most districts in Prague will have someplace for outdoor skating

The coming cold weather means that outdoor skating rinks will start opening across Prague. Most places let you rent skates. The start dates, admission price and services at each rink differ.

Some operators are still sorting out final details, so some information is vague, especially on closing dates.

One of the earliest ones to open in the center is at Na Františku in Prague 1, which starts Nov. 26. This one has an admission of Kč 70 for adults and Kč 40 for children.

Letná Plain in Prague 7 will have the largest rink, at 15 by 40 meters. The skating season will start there on Saturday, Dec. 1. This rink has an accompanying program for children who will have their own area and trained skating instructors. It is open till Jan. 24, 2019, and admission is free.

One of the most popular is in the city center at Ovocný trh, behind the Estates Theater. The opening ceremony takes place on St Nicholas (Sv Mikuláš) Eve, which is Dec. 5, at 5 pm with a special program. It will be open till Jan. 30, 2019, and admission is free.

Prague 6 will have a rink at Vítězné náměstí operated by the district, and new this year at the Šestka shopping center.

Černý Most shopping center in Prague 9 will have an illuminated 20 by 30-meter rink.
Arkády Pankrác in Prague 4 and Galerie Harfa also have rinks. All of the shopping mall rinks have admission fees.

Prague 5 still has not selected an operator for its rink at 14. října, and will announce details on the district website once they are known.
