The hill provides a loved vacation space for the residents of Prague. This garden goes between being calm during the day hours, and a family entertainment area that children love to play at.
Most of the visitors to the gardens come here from the Lesser Town (Malá Strana) district in Prague, with the funicular, a cable car, first operated in 1891 and connects the city to the top of the hill.
Legend says that once the princess Libushe stood here, and predicted that Prague will flourish, will be big and win international recognition. Recognition? - Maybe, but it can be said for certain that there are many children attractions here.
Petrin Tower - a viewpoint tower that looks a lot like the French Eiffel Tower.
Mirror Maze - a place where you will continuously run into mirrors, because it's hard to understand what is reality and what is a reflection. So fun!
Walking and biking trails - many come here to exercise.
The Observatory - a place to see stars in Prague.
Horse Stables - a place to rent horses and go for a ride around the hill.
The Hunger Wall - the historic wall, that was built under Karl IV, when hunger in Prague grew deep. The Emperor assisted the poor, by providing work in wall building, he gave workers food.
Notice that the line to the cable car can be long, especially on weekends and during the summer months.
