One of the most original ways to admire a city is to climb towers and bell towers and contemplate the landscape from above. But what are some of Prague’s viewpoints? The following ones are absolutely not to be missed!
The most impressive is definitely the Old Town Hall Tower: from here you can get an exceptional view of the city’s rooftops and take wonderful photographs!
In second place is the Powder Tower, the ancient gate to the Old Town, the symbol of Prague: with its 65-metre height and its 44-metre-high viewing terrace, it offers truly magical views, but only after climbing a spiral staircase of 186 steps.
Another spectacular spot is Charles Bridge Tower, a true jewel of Gothic architecture: once you reach the top at 18 metres, you will have a breathtaking view of Charles Bridge, the Old Town and Prague Castle. Simply spectacular.
Vitkov Hill offers a spectacular 360° view of the city of Prague. You can reach it on foot or by tram, and it is a popular destination for tourists and Prague residents looking for a breathtaking view of the city. Don’t forget to visit the monumental statue of Czech general Jan Žižka and the Czech War Memorial, from the terrace at the top of which you can admire the most extensive panorama.
If, on the other hand, you prefer more modern sights, you can climb to the top of the Television Tower with an exceptional 360-degree view of the city through the glass windows of the viewing deck in the Žižkov district.
Alternatively, you can tackle the 299 steps of the Petrin observation tower, twin to the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
From Letná Hill, north of the city centre, you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the Old Town and the Vltava River. Drop by the metronome – which is also clearly visible from the centre of Prague – and look out over the city; you will spend some time in peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
