There is a nice public park atop the hill overlooking the city. Petrin Tower is also located here, but don't bother paying admission to go to the top via elevator since there are better views for free throughout the city. The park is perfect for a leisure stroll and some downtime, but it was raining and cold the day we... More

You can use the standard metro ticket for the funicular but when you arrive, you're greeted with a park and a map that most gave up on. But look up and you'll see the lookout tower in front of you. 120czk entry fee which isn't much but it's 300 steps to the top so I bailed. Why would I pay... More

I think it is a great way to view the prague Panorama. We walked from Prague 5 and end at prague castle where we lived nearby. It take some times but it is really relaxing, we didnt go up to the tower and it is unnecessary to spend that money to enjoy.

We bought a 90 minute tram ticket,which also covered the funicular up the hill and gave great views on the way up.It was a snowy day,but we could still see how well kept the area is. We paid about £10 each to go to the top of the viewing tower,but this also included a charge to go up in the... More

Really beautiful park. I rode the furnicular halfway up and walked the rest which was tougher than I thought it would be. I had an 5 day travel ticket for the transport so I could use it on the furnicular. I didn't pay to go into the tower because I didn't want to walk up all of those steps, I've... More

I am only giving this one star because I have to give it a star. My husband and I (we're in our 20s) LOVE mazes. I don't think I have ever laughed so much when we did a mirror maze at Niagara Falls. We easily spent 30 minutes in that maze. The maze at Petrin Hill however is a TOTAL... More

Though we loved Prague, at the street level, the city is crawling with people, vendors, shops, tour groups and restaurants. The hike to the top of Petrin Hill was so refreshing - BEAUTIFUL views of Prague and not all that heavily traveled.

One has to travel with cableway to the top of the hill and enjoy an observation tower located there. Some treat it as an Eiffel's Tower substitute :)

Try to have a nice walk to Petrin Hill, look upon whole Prague from high, very nice to see, especially during the afternoon, where sun started to set. Half city will be in light and half not, very nice.
