At the top of Petřín Hill, you will find Prague's miniature version of the Eiffel Tower – the Petřín Lookout Tower. Although it is 5 times smaller than the French original, it still offers some of the most beautiful views of Prague. Mainly to Prague Castle and Strahov Monastery.

Petrin Tower

You can get to the lookout tower by a number of routes – tourists prefer to walk here from the Strahov Monastery along the Raoul Wallenberg Promenade or use the unique ground cable car from Malá Strana. From below, the Petřín lookout really looks like a miniature of the Eiffel Tower. An elevator or two spiral staircases lead to the top. Admission for an adult is CZK 150.

View of Prague Castle

From the top of the lookout tower, you will have an amazing view of Prague Castle with its dominant feature – the Cathedral of St. Welcome.

View of the Vltava and Charles Bridge

Perhaps even more beautiful is the view across Mala Strana to the bridges over the Vltava

View of the Great Strahov Stadium

In the western direction, there is a view of the megalomaniacal construction of the Great Strahov Stadium – the largest stadium in the world, which is currently in a rather dilapidated state.
