Observation Tower

On top of Petrin Hill is an observation tower modeled on the Eiffel Tower in Paris, although not on quite as grand a scale.

Designed by Vratislav Pasovsky for the 1891 Prague Jubilee Exhibition, it took only four months to complete. Like the Eiffel Tower, it has been constructed out of iron. The tower is situated in the picturesque Petrin Park. Also on the site are other attractions such as an observatory and the hall of mirrors.

There are two viewing platforms on the tower, the first one about 20 meters from the base and the top lookout point is just over 60 meters high. Combined with the height of Petrin Hill, it offers one of the highest vantage points for viewing in the city.

Visitors can climb to the top but first they will need to navigate up 299 steps. The strenuous effort is however worthwhile, as the view from the top is one of the best in Prague. The panoramic views stretch beyond the city limits to the Czech mountains in the distance.

There is a small restaurant on the first floor and in the basement there is a museum which details the history of the tower and the architect who designed it.

To get to the base of the tower, visitors can either climb the steep hill or take the Funicular.
