"Lanovka - funicular to Petrin" Petrin Tower Tip by smirnofforiginal

Petrin Tower, Prague: 60 reviews and 124 photos

The funicular is so cheap it definitely beats walking up to the top! Somethin like KC12.
Petrin is a lovely green hill & a breath of fresh air after all the tourists in town.
At the top of Petrin there is Rozhledna ("lookout") which is like a diddy version of the Eiffel Tower.

TOP TIP - Don't do as I did and go up when the sun is setting. By the time you get to the top it's dark so there's not much of a view & Rozhledna was closed so that kippered that too!

...and if you've got kids - all kids love funicular trains!

Address: Petrinska rozhledna
