Scale to the top of Petřín hill and you'll find a solitary sentinel watching over Prague below. Petřín Tower was inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and gives an almost birds-eye view of the snaking river and the historic centre. Whirring its way up and down the hill is the Petřín funicular railway, giving visitors a more leisurely ascent to the tower and its gardens.
