Stalin Plaza in Prague, Czech Republic is one of the most recognisable skate spots of today. The skate haven has recently been under threat of closure with plans for construction and the introduction of an underground museum in its place, remembering the totalitarian regimes of communism. The plaza has an incredible view overlooking the whole city and is perfect for skateboarding with everything from manual plateaus, ledges and stairs.
Marek Zaprazny claims, "everything there you can skate pretty much, you just need a lot of wax, and a little bit of patience you can break in any ledge. I think it's the best Plaza I have been to in the world."
As Marek arrived to the Plaza for his first skate trip in six years, they were closing off the plaza with tape and the spot was being monitored by the police. In response to this Marek and others decided to create petitions to help save the spot. In the end skateboarding was the winner and the iconic skate spot which has been prevalent since the early 90's was saved. Other skaters Deedz, Younes Samrani and Jordan Trahan make an appearance in celebration, tearing up the plaza in the right way, with epic skateboarding.
