Petřín lookout tower

   It's a 60 meter high steel framework tower next to Prague Castle. It was built in 1891 and it strongly resembles Eiffel tower in Paris but have many differences. You can see almost whole Prague from this point on clear days. It is open from 10am to 7-10pm every day from April to October and only at weekends from November to March, from 10am to 5pm. Entrance is about 4 Euros for adults and 2 Euros for students. It has exactly 299 stairs.




   Petřín tower is probably one of the most romantic places in Prague, it's huge park all around the tower is full of people showing their love to each other. If you want to spend soem time with your partner or you really want to see Prague from bird perspective, this is the prefect place for you to visit.
