The fantastic panoramic views from the top of this tower are well worth the 100kc entry fee and the walk up the very steep staircase. Was lovely seeing the sun set at Prague from the top of this tower.

Went there to get a panoramic view to Prague and didn't regret it. Views are great and as a reward you will get a very beautiful stained glass window inside. Check this out.

Fantastic views of Prague once you conquer the steep stair case. To reach the very top it cost 100CZK which was well worth it. The room before entering the outside show cases the original stone statues.

This was the first structure we saw when we walked into the city. It's a lovely old tower, like the gateway entrance into the city. Looks great at night and you can enter to go in and get some views of the view. There are...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the

No it's on the first level, up a spiral staircase and quite tight for space. Hope this helps.

Tickets are easily bought at the base of the tower. No worries. Only go up if you have a clear day with great visibility.
