Every city likes to provide us with a place to look over it from the perspective of the birds and Prague has its own mini version. 60 metres up, it’s much higher when you add the height of Petrin Hill which it perches on. It’s 299 steps up to the top, while the bottom is set in gardens. If the walk up the hill sounds a bit too energetic a prelude to climbing the stairs there is a funicular railway to the observatory’s base. On a clear day you can see all the way to the Czech Republic’s highest peak.
