Great Strahov Stadium

March 20, 2022, 12:00 PM

With Open House Praha you are invited to explore one of the world’s biggest stadiums ever built. The special commented tours in English will take you to the presidential lounge, west grandstand, or amazing walkaways. You will find out about the long history of this concrete giant which was built for displays of synchronized gymnastics called Spartakiada but also hosted concerts or military parades. Since 2003 the stadium has been listed as a cultural monument of the Czech Republic. At the end of the tour, you will have an opportunity to climb up 130 stairs into the original Gate of Champions, where you can enjoy amazing views of the whole stadium.

Although we are an apolitical cultural organization, the situation in Ukraine weighs on us and we would like to help. We have therefore decided to donate the proceeds from this event to the SOS Ukraine public fundraiser run by People in Need. #cultureforukraine
