It's a smaller replica of the Eiffel Tower, we went up by stairs, the view since you are climbing till you are totally on top is amazing. You can appreciate all of the city in every angle. It's a little pricy but it's a once in a lifetime adventure so i recommend it.

Stunning part of Prague with brilliant views on a clear day, a wee bit of effort to get to top of the park if your walking but take your time and enjoy the surroundings, I never went to top of the tower but the view from the hilltop is excellent.

Unlike another reviewer, my friend and I had never been in a mirror maze, so perhaps that's why we found it charming and well worth while. The lovely building is over 100 years old (b. 1891), and is in a beautiful venue. We go a little bit lost, and had fun in the goofy mirror section. We are both American... More

Riding the funicular up this hill - which forms part of the public transport network, so if you have a 1- or 3-day ticket or similar you don't need to buy a separate ticket for it - is more about getting from A to B than an experience in itself, since the ride is short and the cabins are usually...

Take a walk up to the tower through the nice and quiet park. Petrin Tower is the focal point of this. You can take in great views of the city from here, excellent photo opportunity to capture the city and river at the same time. Petrin Tower tickets offer a chance to take in the mirror maze, although this was... More

Firstly if you have a Prague card you wont have to pay for anything other than eats and drinks.. Best way to get to the top is on funicular which is like a shuttle that take you to the top,which can get a bit packed out at busy times. The more energetic ones can walk up but it is quite... More

Get the tram included free with public transport up the hill and walk around the top to the castle but don't go in the mirror maze there are only about 10 mirrors and it takes 20 seconds to walk through

Petrin Hill is an absolutely wonderful park with gorgeous nature and trees, you see fruit trees all the way to the top, and there are wonderful spots you can just stop to enjoy, and take photos. The view of Prague from here is breathtaking, and wonderful! It is quite a walk to get up there, we found out about the... More

We were only there for a day and there was so much to see so I am sure we missed lots. However, what we saw was beautiful. We went up on the funicular and then walked down into the Lesser Quarter.

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.
