After visiting the Prague Castle we went to Petrin Hill with its tower. They say it is like the tower in Paris, don't get too excited. It is very small. You can go up by elevator or stairs and enjoy the view over Prague. One side you see the old town and new town and also the soccer stadium. Just great. Have a nice cup of tea with cake downstairs before you continue to the mirror palace. A small (very small) mirror maze and some distorting mirrors. Which were fun. We continued our walk trough the park. The paths are steep so not for the ones who can't walk very well. Nice place to spend some time.

It is quiet a climb to get there (unless yountake the train) and if the elevator is broken (like in our case) it takes a climb to get to the top, but it's worth the view. Prices in the bar downstairs are cheap so don't be afraid to relax after your climb!

A long, hard walk but definitely worth it to see the view at the top of the hill, we also paid extra to go up Petrin tower and this was brilliant. You could see for miles over Prague and it looked lovely!

We took the funicular up to Petrin Hill. The views from the mini Eiffel tower across Prague were fantastic.
