The Metronome is a giant metronome located overlooking the Vltava River and the city center of Prague. It was once fully funtional, but in the last years I've never seen it moving.
It was erected in 1991, and stands on the plinth left vacant by the destruction of an enormous monument to former Soviet leader Joseph Stalin (the monument was destroyed in 1962). The 75 foot-tall Metronome is now mostly a scenic vista and a meeting place for young people. It was designed by international artist Vratislav Novak.
The area behind the metronome is also a famous skatespot where skateboarders from around Europe and the world congregate and film throughout the year.
