“'Escape' the city”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

After a couple of days sight-seeing ( in my case combined with work) it is great to get out of a city. Here is a place with a funicular railway, interesting works of art, gardens and magnificent views.

Not to be missed

“The tower is not worth it, the mirrors are”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We climbed the Petrin Hill for the Czech version of the Eiffel Tower, we could hardly wait to see Prague from up above. But we got up there and it was really crowded. The bad part is that you climb up the stairs that others climb down and it gets pretty crowded. If there is any elevator there, it did not work when we visited. It's almost 4 euros to climb up the stairs. We didn't enjoy it much, but we forgot our disappointment in the mirror labyrinth. There are no signs in English up there, so look for "Bludiste". It is so much fun to see reflections and not realise which is the real thing.
We also wanted to see the Ukranian wooden church on Petrin Hill, but since there were no guides in the area and no signs in English, we just could not find it. Maybe next time.

“Great way to start your stay in Prague”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We decided to start from here to see what the city looks like. In a nice spring weather we climbed up and got a fantastic view of Prague. Good beer and cake in the small restaurant too.

“Nice strolling in the big park!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

If the weather is fine, I cannot advise better place in Prague for silent following the paths between trees, sometimes coming to open places with excellent views of Old Town and Lesser Quarter! Add this point to your Prague visiting plan without any doubt!
