Petřín, Prague

4.4
#2 of 235 in Parks in Czech Republic
On a clear day, Petřín offers sweeping views of Prague and beyond. Rising some 130 m (420 ft) above the left bank of the Vltava River, the hill is one of the city's most popular recreational areas for both visitors and natives. The hill's dominant feature is a 62 m (200 ft) high lookout tower, inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Although you can scramble up the hill on foot, the easiest way to access the top is by a century-old funicular railway. Once there, you can climb the lookout tower's 299 steps for a small fee, or picnic in the park for free. For Petřín and beyond, use our Prague travel planner to get the most from your Prague vacation.

  • We are with cable car to the top, and then take the lift up to the top of the Tower, you can also do the stairs if you wish, beautiful view of the city

  • After visiting the castle we decided to visit the thousands of cherry trees, this hill. Arrived we found ourselves immersed in nature with several benches where you can rest.

  • This is well worth the cost of the funicular up to the top of the hill and the climb up the tower for the best views of Prague. There is a lift up the tower for those who can't manage the climb  more »

  • What a lovely park. The walk was beautiful and there was always something to look at. The old walls that still surround it are super cool. If you are interested in nature and history then go. The tower was a good walk to then up it but the view was incomparable to any other view in Prague
  • Awesome point. Alot of stuff to do for kids and adults as well. Rose garden is really beautiful have every color of rose. I will recommend to not try going up to the tower in the morning its too crowded as people prefer to visit this point in the morning .
  • Beautiful park, very nice for long long walks. There is a tram if you don't feel like climbing to the hill on your own.
  • Gorgeous park. Lots of fun things to do
  • Nice view of the city, you can take the bus up the hill instead of climbing too.

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
