Petřín Hill is covered in green space with numerous landscaped gardens and leafy parks. It is the perfect place for a peaceful stroll with a range of excellent views. It is a common recreation area for Prague locals with the rose gardens being a popular destination. When walking around the park, make sure to visit the Memorial to the Victims of Communism to ponder over the dark days of communism that gripped Czech history. Atop the hill is a cast iron structure which is 63.5 metres tall called The Petřín Tower. Despite the tower being relatively small, the viewing platform actually reaches 318 metres into the sky – due to it being on the brow of Petřín Hill! There are 299 steps to the top where you’ll be greeted by a stunning view of the city. On a clear day, it’s possible to see all the way to Snezka, the highest mountain in the Czech Republic, 150 km away. Top Tip: If you are not keen on walking up the hill, you can hop on the charming funicular railway that rides to the top. The departure point is at Ujezd street in the Lesser Town, near Ujezd tram stop. The funicular forms part of the general city transport network which means a standard metro ticket is valid.
