Sunday, August 20, 2023; 2.00 pm

You are invited to explore one of the world’s biggest stadiums ever built! The special guided tour in English will take you to the presidential lounge, west grandstand, or amazing passageways. You will learn about the long history of this concrete giant, which was built for displays of synchronized gymnastics called Spartakiada and 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.
