Overview of Ice Skating options and Ice-rinks in Prague

Activities, Sports and Fitness, Useful Information on 09 December 2012 by Darina


So I’ve searched all possible places for Ice-Skating in Prague. If you know about a place that I didn’t list, please let us know and we will add it. I even called a few places to make sure they are open to the public as the info on their webpages was confusing. My boys learnt to skate last year and I bought them small ice-hockey sticks. My Mom came up with a brilliant idea - she took an old stroller and let Nikki skate with it, it supported him before he was ready to let go and saved him some injuries. Have fun and let us know how it went :-). It’s never too late to learn how to ice skate and it’s certainly an activity to keep the young ones healthy and entertained.

Ovocny trh, Prague 1:
Outdoor Ice-rink, smack in the middle of the historical town. Skating is for free if you have your own skates. Otherwise, you can just hire a pair. The cost is 50 CZK per pair, per hour and you will need to provide your ID card or passport as proof of identity. If you do not have any of these documents, then you may still hire a pair of skates by providing a fully-refundable deposit of 600 CZK.
