A stones throw away from the Prague Castle the hill is perfect for a summer walk away
from the tourist bustle. Part of the land is set aside for apple and pear orchard from which the fruit can be freely
picked of the trees. The observation tower and a manicured garden dominate the summit and half way down is the
famous restaurant Vinarna Nebozizek where you can enjoy a perfect meal with a perfect view of Prague. Don’t forget the
hall of mirrors for a new and varied perspective of yourself - also on the submit.
Much of the building stone for the major sights in Prague was quarried out of Petrin, however today this is not noticeable
beneath the trees and gardens.
The hill is 318 meters or 1043 feet high. For those less energetic, a funicular will save you the trouble of a
climb for the small price of a normal tram ticket.
