The best view from Prague! It's worth it going upstairs. I prefer the floor in the middle of the tower. The highest one is too small and too crowded. It's almost impossible to breath there.

Spectacular views of Prague. Take the funicular from Lesser Town - you need to get tickets at the base of the ride - not great (English) instructions as to how to buy tickets and cost of them - you have to muddle through as there is no one there to help. Make sure the you validate your ticket - there... More

We travelled to Petrin Hill on a Segway tour. Otherwise it is a tough walk up the hill or find the finicular. Once you are there there is a lot for kids and the walk and park are relaxing for older kids/adults.

We walk there from hopon hopoff stop 9, Strahov monestry. It is not far away. It was too many people to go to the tower so we did not visit there. Around there are nice parks with rosegardens etc. From there it is easy to walk to Charles bridge or to Prague castle. The view is nice all over there.

This is a must go place in Prague. You will have perfect view of whole city. Better choose to climb during nice weather. It's best if you go there with the student card. It's cheaper that way.

Long hike. No easy way to get there. Long line up for the funicular. Exceedingly hot day in August. Maybe some other day.

We went there during an hot day in August to visit mainly the observatory and the tower. We also were walking thought the gardens and enjoyed the place. Let me say that if you stay in Prague more than 2 days you should come to visit this place

Prague is made for walking and the Petrin Hill is no exception. It's possible to ride the funicular up along the hill side, but I find it nicer to stroll up one of the many paths to the top. Half way up there are two restaurants, one large, posh, and expensive with a great view and the other quite small,... More

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods 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 shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
