Petřín Observation Tower, Prague

4.0 stars


Petrin Observation tower (Petrinska Rozhledna)

The tower on the top of Petrin hill is a wonderful place for observation of the city of Prague. The view from the top is amazing: the castle and Strachov monastery are just in front of you, the old town and the new town are a little bit further, but still easily seen. Even the castle of Visehrad can be seen quite well. Everything can bee seen from the top of that tower, even the stadiums and the modern quarters of the city covered with panel blocks and even the enormous horse statue of Jan Zizka on the hill in Zizkov quarter close to the tv tower. Some say that the tower bears resemblance to the Eifel tower, but for me that doesn’t matter – the point of visiting the tower is in the view, and not the tower itself, and the view from Petrin tower to Prague is even better than the view towards Paris center from the Eifel tower.

Petřín Observation Tower

Petřín Observation Tower is located at the top of Petřín Hill. It is a structure that very much resembles the Eiffel Tower in Paris, but of course this is a smaller version. It was built in 1891. for the Prague Jubilee Exhibition. This metal structure is 60 meters tall, offers wonderful views of Prague and it is nestled among beautiful gardens. Of course you will have to take 299 steps to reach the observation deck so it is not for the faint hearted.

Opening hours are Jan – Mar Sat, Sun from 10:00am until 5:00pm; Apr daily from 10:00am until 7:00pm, May to Aug from 10:00am until 10:00pm; Oct 10:00am until 6:00pm; Nov and Dec Sat, Sun and public holidays from 10:00am until 5:00pm. [more ]
