Petrin Hill, Prague

(4.2/5 based on 4,800+ reviews on the web)
On a clear day, Petrin Hill offers sweeping views of Prague and beyond. Rising some 130 m (420 ft) above the left bank of the Vltava River, the hill is one of the city's most popular recreational areas for both visitors and natives. The hill's dominant feature is a 62 m (200 ft) high lookout tower, inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Although you can scramble up the hill on foot, the easiest way to access the top is by a century-old funicular railway. Once there, you can climb the lookout tower's 299 steps for a small fee, or picnic in the park for free.

  • If you don't like walking stairs keeps you must try. I the 30 steps or so there is a small bench to relax and upstairs there is a beautiful view. You can climb the tower for 4 euro (discount if you have a students or teachers only). If you want to visit the spiegeldolhof then you can buy 2 cards in 1, which is cheaper than both apart.

  • Prague has plenty of green areas. This is certainly the most beautiful. Beautiful walk in the Park, at any time. Quiet area offering a spectacular view over Prague.

  • If you like to wait in line, take the lane, pay your entrance and climb the steps up to the top by playing together. Yes, the view is unique, but from the terrace of the Castle also, and there is no rush.
