"Petrin Hill?s Observation Tower" Petrin Tower Tip by easyoar

Petrin Tower, Prague: 60 reviews and 124 photos


If you think this Observation Tower looks like the Eiffel Tower in Paris, that is because it is a loose copy of it. It was built in 1891 for a Jubilee Exhibition. It is much smaller than the Eiffel Tower however being just 60 metres high (approx a quarter the size of the Eiffel Tower).

The Tower is now open again after being restored. There is no life however so you must climb all 299 steps to get the views, which are quite good, but I preferred the view from Letna Park, and that was free!

Address: Petrinska rozhledna
