Create an itinerary including Petrin Tower
For a little Czech-flavored taste of Paris, visit Petrin Tower, dominating the surrounding area from its location high above the Vltava River. Built in 1891, this 63 m (206 ft) tall steel structure is a scaled-down copy of Paris' Eiffel Tower. The structure features 299 steps, which run on the inside of the tower and lead to two separate observation platforms. After decades of service as a transmission tower, massive renovations in 1999 turned the structure into a tourist attraction, adding a small cafe, gift shop, and exhibit area to its lower levels. Pay the small fee to access the tower's observation platforms, offering unbeatable views of the entire city.

  • At the moment I've visited the elevator was not working so it was also a nice workout other than a beautiful view of Prague. At the top floor you can feel the tower moving slightly with the wind!! Overall a nice experience. Could be bitty cheaper? Yes! But it's worthy, also buy your ticket from the website to cut totally the line!!
  • It is situated in a beautiful park. Spring is wonderful to visit since you can see cherry trees blossom. The tower itself looks cool, there are always many people who want to climb it - and it is really high) somewhere like 300 stairs. But the view is amazing!
