"I don't know that many people..." Petrin Tip by hslowe

Petrin, Prague: 39 reviews and 41 photos


I don't know that many people get over to see the <b>Hunger Wall</b>, located in Mala Strana on the Petrin hill. According to the legend Charles started the wall for humanitarian reasons, to employ and feed people during the famine of 1360-61, when the harvests were very poor. It's a very beautiful part of Prague.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
