We were staying at the Golden Star, in Hradcany, so of course for us it was just a short walk to reach this Park and Petrin Tower. And since we wanted anyway to visit the Strahov Monastery, its Library and its Brewery it wasn't a...More

I went with my parents to the mirror maze and we thought it was a total rip off! When you go into the first room there are some mirrors, and then you just go through a corridor of mirrors and then you walk out. You...More

I would highly recommend either climbing the 300 steps or getting the lift to the top of Petrin Hill Tower. The view from the top is unreal. You get a view of not only the atttractions you have already seen in the city but you...More

This tower is a long walk and has steep path at times, but it is a very engaging and beautiful walk, oversees the view of the city and walks to the tower which is quite popular among the tourist. It cost money to go up...More

Well worth the visit, minus points from having to pay for toilets after purchasing tickets to the attractions. Visit the observation tower during sunset!

A lovely way to escape the busy streets. Beautiful views and free to walk around. Perfect to unwind for a couple of hours. There's always the railway if you need a lift. Best of all the walk is free.

We had a nice walk around the hill and it was nice and quite compared to the crazy busy centre, you could spend an hour here.

Petrin Hill offers a respite in crowded times in the city. The park is fantastic and picturesque. We'll worth the walk.

A great park for a walk up to the top with lovely views the whole way up. Feels like you’re really out of the city and as most people take the funicular up, it’s much less crowded too. It’s really not far from Charles Bridge...More

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch

The funicular is very convenient and there is a lift to the very top of the tower.
