Petřín, Prague

4.3
On a clear day, Petřín 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. For Petřín and beyond, use our Prague travel planner to get the most from your Prague vacation.

  • At the highest point in Prague. It is worth going to Petrin by train or even on foot (the climb is very tiring) but the view of the city from above compensates for the effort. I recommend the visit;

  • Very expensive and not for people who don't like heights. Beautiful view.
  • We walked up, pretty hard walk but better then waiting for the crowded train. The view is great.
