Petrin Tower is a TV tower that looks like a mini Eiffel Tower located on Petrin Hill in Prague. It was built in 1891 for the Jubilee Exhibition. The tower is 200 feet tall, but because Petrin Hill is 1,043 feet high, the top of the tower is about the same height as the top of the real Eiffel Tower in Paris. You can reach the top by climbing 299 stairs, and once you're up there, you will have wonderful views of the city from the viewing platform. On a clear day it is possible to see Snezka, the highest peak in the Czech Republic, which is 93 miles away.
The tower is surrounded by a grassy park and several other attractions, making this a fun place to spend a few hours. To reach the top of Petrin Hill, you can drive, walk, or take the funicular.
The funicular to Petrin Tower is located on Ujezd Street. Opening hours are 10am to 6pm November through February, 10am to 8pm March and October, and 10am to 10pm April through September.
