Petrin Hill, Prague, Czech Republic
Ujezd St, Prague, Czech Republic| Map |
Prague's beloved Petrin Hill is the perfect destination for families. A former vineyard of King Charles, the wooded park is now a prime location for enjoying stunning city views and unique attractions. To reach the park, hop on the aptly named Funicular; a cable car that takes visitors from Ujezd Street to the top of Petrin Hill every 15 minutes. Visitors should not miss the statue of famous local writer Karel Hynek Macha, the city's de facto patron saint of lovers and author of the romantic poem "May." The fun continues at Petrin Tower (Rozhledna), which mirrors Paris? Eiffel Tower. Although it looks intimidating, visitors can reach the top in roughly four minutes -- making it an easy feat for all ages. If the climb still leaves visitors a bit winded, head for the Mirror Maze (Bludiste) where the distorted reflections provide the perfectly quirky family photo op. The fun continues with affordable pony and horseback rides, an all-ages observatory and even a picturesque stroll through the beautiful rose gardens. To continue the adventure, follow the park's lovely wooded trails to nearby Prague Castle or historic Strahov Monastery.
