We really enjoyed our visit here, there's so much to do! We got to see both Saturn and the moon through their two telescopes, and the staff were really chatty and up for answering all of our questions! Plus there are lots of little exhibits to explore. If you don't fancy climbing the hill then there's a funicular to the top which is two minutes from the observatory - also great fun!

Walking over the Charles bridge we could see high up the park and vehicular tram,leading to the Observatory.
Entrance is at minimal cost and a good hour or two can be used to view all the detailed information of the planets ,stars and space ,.
We found looking through the telescopes the best,as they were live views.
Lots to see here ,especially on a wet day inside.
Travel to it on vehicular tram .
Walk back down through beautiful tended gardens.

We enjoyed our visit here.
Guides were very interesting and were fluent in french !
It is an excellent idea to choose students who are fond of astronomy. We learned a lot of things ! We observe Venus and the sun.
Exhibition was fun.

Des jeunes du lycée français de prague nous on montré les tâches présentent sur le soleil ainsi que Vénus avec des explications sur les instruments . Une des rares visites où les explications sont en français.

For a very reasonable price, you have the oppontunity to see and learn things about astronomy and have a look through the telescopes at the Sun, the sunspots and Jupiter. The professionals there will let you know many interesting things about their work and research.
It is also nice to rearch the observatory though a lovely walk in the great park!

The exhibit on meteorites, star formation and general physics is really interactive and engaging. I also loved that the domes were open and we were able to observe the Sun and its sunspots and see Venus. The staff shared lots of interesting information on what we were observing and it was a lovely surprise on Petrin Hill to find such an interesting attraction. Well worth a visit!
