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.
