  Petrin Tower
by grkboiler

The Petrin Tower is perched atop Petrin Hill in Mala Strana. It is a 5:1 scale model of the Eiffel Tower in Paris that was built for the Prague Exposition of 1891. If you can survive the walk up the 299 steps, you will get an amazing view of Prague and the surrounding areas.

To get to Petrin Tower, either walk up or take the funicular railway from Ujezd in Mala Strana at the bottom of the hill.

There is a small fee to climb the steps. It is open from April to October.

Address: Petrinska rozhledna
Directions: Petrin Hill, visible from anywhere.
