“Not a must visit in Prague”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

If you are running out of time, you can skip Petrin Hill without regret. There are not much things to do up there. The hill has furnicular, a beautiful observatory tower and a very old wall. It also has gardens and my favorite garden is the one with rows of white bench. A nice place for photoshoot, but not for tourist who search for something exotic and interesting. However, the view of Prague from up here is fantastic. For someone who love to take pictures like me, Petrin Hill is a must.

“Ideal picnic area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

A bit of a steep walk to the top but worth it for the views across Prague. There was a queue for the funicular railway which was disappointing but it's a great area, ideal for a picnic.

“Exceptional during springtime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Great place to go for a walk, to have a date, a quiet time alone or busy time with kids. Spacious playgrounds with all sorts of things to entertain kids. Very nice view on Prague Castle and Old Town.
The slope is quite steep for older people or small kids, but there's cable car for such cases.
The best time to go there is probably during spring when the trees are blooming.

“Great place for a picnic/a walk!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Be sure to take the tram up to the top of the hill - I walked it as 'it didn't look that high' and it killed me!
