I try to go to Petrin every time I'm in Prague. It's a beautiful hill covered by greenery, located in Mala Strana, with wonderful views over the rest of the city. You can either walk up or take a funicular which runs every coupe of minutes (if you have a one-day or three-day ticket, it's valid for this as well)... More

Petrin Hill is a great place to visit and it was our first introduction to Prague when we first visited in 2013. The walk to the top is beautiful and on the way up you'll see great views of Prague Castle and the city. You'll have to pay a small fee to climb Petrin, but it is worthwhile. You get... More

A lovely series of winding paths, inter-spaced with statuary, old fortifications, etc. Climb the mini-Eiffel for the best view of Prague bar none. Playgrounds for the kids are here and there as well, so ideal for them. The Mirror Hall, on the other hand, is tiny (20 seconds) and a waste of money IMO. The Observatory, in contrast, is worth...

What a great view! Not only do you get to look out over the city from the top of a tower, but the tower is perched on top of a tall hill to boot! The walk up the hill is not for the faint of heart but it is well worth the effort and very scenic. Very fun.

We made our way up via the tram or funicular as they call it. That was fun! The views from the top of the tower are fabulous and well worth the trip! It's surrounded by beautiful flower gardens, roses too! From here you walk to the castle then back down into the streets of the city!

We hiked all the way up Petrin Hill, and it was totally worth the walk! The view was breath taking. I highly suggest going there if you visit Prague. (There is a funicular if you don't feel like walking up)

We walked all the way to the top which was quite a steep hill but the views on the way and at the top were superb. As I have a fear of heights we did not go to the top of the tower but I am told that if you do you will be well rewarded. The gardens at the... More

We were taking the walk around Petrin Hill and found it by accident. It's not brilliant and easy to criticise but I thought this was a bit of fun.

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.
