The Great Strahov Stadium (Czech: Velký strahovský stadion) is a stadium in the Strahov district of Prague, Czech Republic. It was built for displays of synchronized gymnastics on a massive scale, with a field three times as long as and three times as wide as the standard Association football pitch. It has a capacity of 250,000 spectators, of which is 56,000 seating, making it the largest stadium and the second largest sports venue ever built.
Today, the stadium is no longer in use for competitive sports events; it is a training centre for Sparta Prague, and is used to host pop concerts. The stadium is sited on Petřín Hill overlooking the old city. It can be accessed by taking the Petřín funicular up the hill through the gardens, or by taking tram lines 22, 23 or 25 to Malovanka station.

The stadium has been on the list of UNESCO cultural heritage sites since 2003.

  • Incredibly big stadium. I was able to visit the place during OpenHousePraha 2019 and it is Huge, 9 soccer fields inside. Many rock bands have played there before. The visit is really worth it. If you are able to get in you will have a very nice view (depending on which side of the stadium you are). You will need to find if its opened to the public.
  • An old 100k+ concrete stadium with no real purpose but to serve as a blackboard for some cryptic anarchistic messages. Still meaningful thing in our modern history, though it's probably a waste of time for foreigners to visit. You can't really get inside.
