The metronome replacing Stalin

Overlooking the Vltava river and central Prague, you find the semi-functional Metronome in the Letná park, instead of the massive Joseph Stalin sculpture, taken down in 1962. The 23-metre-tall Metronome, however, wasn’t erected until 1991, following the late 1989 Velvet revolution, designed by Vratislav Novak.

More on Communism in a later post on my Museum of Communism visit a couple of days ago.
