It worth it to climb the hill (not hard at all) and see the third biggest statue in the world from close distance. Nice views of the city. Yo can also visit the tomb of the unknown soldier. We were lucky the guard shared with us a lot of historical facts. Vitkov park is very nice, to just have a... More

You really do earn your views, walking up to this monument. I have to put a disclaimer out there, though - we made the mistake of trying to visit Vitkov without checking their site. I had us allotting time to this monument on a different day in the week, but we needed to make adjustments on the fly, which led... More

The monument at Vitkov offers great views over the city and is well worth the walk up the hill to get there. The statue of Jan Zizka obviously is the centre piece and it is free to walk around, but it is also free to enter the hall with the tomb to the unknown soldier. Entrance to the museum is... More

During the walk up the hill to this attraction I did wonder if it would be worth the effort. It was. Fascinating history brought to live with exhibitions inside and you can get out onto the top of this building to get wonderful views of this magical city. The horseman statue of Jan Zizka of Trocnov is the biggest horseman... More

The statute of Jan Zizka atop Vitkov Hill is simply amazing. Maybe one of the better stautes designed under communist rule. The statue towers over the empty square and is just incredible. I also love the views of the red rooftops from Vinohrady. Great rooftop views of prague! The Museum of Military History is also a quick walk and is... More

This is a wonderful monument at the top of a hill but it is vast and is good that people have somewhere to come and pay their respects to soldiers who have died during conflicts.

The guidebooks and travel blogs refer many visitors to Charles Bridge, Old Town Square and Prague Castle, often overlooking this beautiful and stunning monument. Make sure you visit the "the must see's," but include a visit to Vitkov National Monument. Petrin Tower offered magnificent views of the city, but in our opinion none were better then at Vitkov. During the... More
