If you, like me, like seeing a place from up high, then this is your place.
Head to Petrin Hill and take the Funicular, or walk if you wish (!) up the hill to the observation tower.
This tower resembles the top bit of the Eiffel tower, but its only 60m. It does offer stunning views though due to it being build on top of Petrin Hill (320m), so you are treated to a fantastic view after you have climbed up the 300 steps. That is a real calorie burner after all the beers from the night before... as it was in my case.
Please note that the elevator is only for use by elderly or disabled visitors.

Please also note that its open Sat and Sun from Jan - Mar and Nov and December.
Other months its open daily.

Address: Petrinska rozhledna
Directions: Petrin Hill, visible from anywhere.
To get there the closest tram stop is Ujezd (trams 12, 22, 23). Then, walk or take the funicular railway up Petrin hill (20czk).
