Prague Petrin Tower Photo Gallery


A one-fifth-scale copy of Paris's Eiffel Tower, Prague's Petrín Tower was constructed out of recycled railway track for the 1891 Prague Exhibition. Although it's not a tall building at all, it sits on top of a hill overlooking the city, so the views are still magnificent.

To get to the tower, take the funicular uphill.

This is the best place to get a perspective view of Prague Castle sprawling along the hillside.

Following the river, the old town and Charles Bridge come into view.

The TV Tower further back has great views of the castle, but is quite far from the old town to give the same impact.

The other side is a more modest residential quarter, albeit still very green and serene.
