Really worth visiting. Very pretty and tranquil. Lots to do as well, the climb up the tower is hard work (about 300 steps) but worth the effort for the amazing views over the city. We used the funicular to get to the top of the hill but chose to walk back down the path which meanders through the wooded hillside.... More

When I visited Prague in March of 2015, Spring had arrived and the weather was perfect. We had seen Petrin Hill while walking around the city, so on our last afternoon in town we decided to venture to the top. We elected to do so by foot, and were happy we did. The funicular path up is cheap, but walking... More

We took the hard route of hiking which was tiresome but worth it once we got up there. The Petrin tower itself was not too impressive. We took the fenicular to get back to the city.

It just an observation tower what can I say lol ok maybe more. We paid to get on the lift as my girlfriend didn't fancy going on the spiral stairs to get up the tower. What a big mistake for me as I get very claustrophobic. The lift is a tight solid steel tube which goes up really slow almost... More

The little Eiffel Tower is of course very touristic and you could wait to see the view but it's always cool to appreciate this kind of view of the city !

Is's famous because there is a copy of Efel Tower. You can rise on elevator or on stairs. I recommend on elevator because it's takes a lot of time and little hard. Also on Petrin Hill a lot of beautiful parks and there is observatory too.

Spent our last day in Prague wandering around this park. We walked from Narodni and only took about 10 mins. We took the funicular up, purchasing a half hr ticket, as we were planning on walking down. We visited the gardens, walked round the tower, and over to the monastery. Fantastic views of Prague and a great walk thru the... More

This is a lovely park with amazing views across Prague including to the Castle and Charles Bridge. Take the funicular to the top but validate your ticket as you go through the gates or you will be fined if caught. There are a lot of comments on this but it's very easy to get right and Prague isn't unusual for... More

If you want to escape the crowd and noise of the centre I recommend you to visit the Petrin Hill. Petrin Hill is a beautiful park where you will find quietness and breathtaking views. A cable train will get you to the top for a little contribution. There is a special wooden church in the park, but it's difficult to... More

A coffin type of lift takes you to the top - a tight squeeze with 4 and the guy who controls it! easy walk down the steps though. views are fab.

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.
