If you have time, remember to take the funicular to reach the top of Petrin Hill, between the orchards and the woods. Beloved of the people of Prague, it is not only a good place to get some fresh air and get away from the town, but it’s also the perfect place to have a beautiful view of Prague.
The observatory tower on top of the hill is a replica – smaller of course – of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Access: The funicular is taken at the tram station Ujezd (lines 12, 22, 23). You can also access the hill from the Strahov Monastery.
If you get hungry on the way down, stop at the excellent restaurant Nebozizek, mid-height on the hill. The food is excellent and the prices rather reasonable if one considers the extraordinary views of the city, which are included in the price!
