The tower is not only gives a great 360 degree view of Prague but has a history behind in connected to the Funicular railway coming up Petrin Hill. Both were built about the time of the Eiffel tower in Paris. There are 299 steps to the top and it is well worth the climb. At 53 years old I did not have any problems going up, but I did stop at the observation deck part way up. The views are great during the day and I can only imagine the views after dark. The one thing to remember is that there are an up set of steps and a down set of steps and if you stop at the observation deck before going to the top don't get them confused like we did. It is fairly cheap to enter and for a small additional fee you can ride the elevator up instead. After coming down they have small snack bar with sweets and drinks. Well worth the visit.
