The 318-metre-high Petřín Hill consists of eight parks offering magnificent panoramas of Prague. Climb to the top of Petrin Hill or take the cableway leaving from Ujezd tram stop – no city in Europe has more rewarding views. There you will find a mirror labyrinth, a telecommunication tower which is similar to the ‘Tour Eiffel’ miniature, the Hunger Wall that was built by the poor of the city in return for food in the 14th century, the Church of St. Lawrence, and the wooden Church of St. Michael. Near the Mirror Maze, there is the possibility for children to have fun pony tours, while adults will find the observatory very interesting.
