Cable railway Petřín
The Petřín View Tower was directly inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris which is five times higher. It was built by the Czech Tourist Club, which had attended the Exposition Universelle in 1889 in Paris and decided to construct a similar tower in Prague starting two years later. Two spiral staircases wind around this – one for the journey up and the other for the way down. The lookout tower has two observation decks. The upper deck is at a height of 55 metres and it is needed to walk up 299 stairs to get to the top.
The lookout from tower itself offers an extraordinary breathtaking view when the magnificence of medieval Prague and beautiful czech landscape can be observed in its naked beauty. In a cloudless day you can see a legandary Czech Mountain Říp. To reach the peak of Petřín Hill you can use either a cable railway or nice footpath.
