Petrín Tower

The Petøín lookout tower is a 60 metre high steel framework tower in Prague, which strongly resembles the Eiffel Tower. Although it is much shorter than the Eiffel Tower, it stands atop a sizable hill, Petøín, so the top is at almost the same altitude. The Petøín lookout tower was built in 1891 and was used as an observation tower as well as a transmission tower. Today the Petøín lookout tower is a major tourist attraction. If you go up the hard way, the hill is roughly a half-hour walk up paths that get quite slippery when it snows, and the tower is a shorter but fairly tiring climb; however, the hill is served by a frequent funicular and the tower has an elevator for disabled persons. On clear days, the tower offers a good view of the Prague skyline.
