Enjoy in the natural side of Prague, far away from the crowd. Petrin Hill is a hill in the city area with many parks ideal for hikers. Standing some three hundred meters above the city, this hill is a popular destination for those who’d like to see the city from different angle. Petrin Hill is exactly the place that gives you that opportunity. In the late ninteteenth century, Prague people were impressed with the Eiffel Tower in Paris and built something similar. The Petrin Lookout Tower is more that 60 meters high observation tower, resembling the much famous Parisian one. From the top of the tower, the view of the city is just indescribable.
The easiest way to get to the Petrin Hill is by tram. Use lines 6, 9, 12, 20 or 22 and get off at Újezd.
Petrin Hill is a city area of Prague and because of that the entrance is free. However, there are dozens of attractive restaurants and coffee shops around hill (and the tower, off course) that will make you spend some money.
