Loved everything about Prague but this was very disappointing. We walked from the magnificent castle to this. It's nowhere as impressive as the Eiffel Tower. Reminded me of the cellphone masts we have in Africa.

The walk to the tower is totally worth it! I think it is walkable for most people (my condition is not what it used to be). Entrance is not expensive and you get a great view in return! Back down, you can take the cable cart, for which you can use your public transport cart.

The tower itself is pretty unimpressive to see but you can pay to go up the tower and I am guessing the views will be amazing. However, we chose ot spend out time walking through the park and meandering down all the little paths. Doing this we found a restaurant underground in a monestary, a wodden church, a lovely pond,...

I am not usually one to be amazed by views and did not know what to expect but, MY GOD!! The view from this tower is the best I have ever witnessed. We went around 5.30pm so just as it got dark and it took my breath away when we reached the top!! Can't stop showing people the pictures.

A unique attraction that gives a great view. Use the funicular to easily get up Petrin Hill. Slightly pricey for what it is.

I would definitely recommend to go here when visiting Prague! We walked all the way up which was a nice little exercise. The view from the top of the tower is just magnificent. It was definitely worth the walk!

Petrin Hill looks like a page out of Narnia after a snowfall- hence, it's a must see if you happen to be in Prague when it's snowing! The upwards route was crisscrossed and the incline was gentle enough make the climb enjoyable. We hiked up to the top of the hill and took a tram at Petrin station to get... More

Be brave and go all the way up the hill (walking!) and finally up the tower's stairs to see the 360o sightseeing view over the city! Worth it!
