WHERE YOU WILL FIND THE BEST VIEWS OF PRAGUE
Charles Bridge Tower
For spectacular views of Charles bridge, you may have to climb a few steps, 138 to be precise. However, not only will you get to see this great structure, you will find that views across the Vltava River to the other side of Prague are equally as appealing. Another good thing is that, there are hardly any waiting times at this mid-14th-century medieval tower and is in itself also a great place to explore.
As you can tell, most of the best views of Prague come from the old towers and Hall tower is no exception. From here, you will be able to capture a fantastic photo of Old Town. Even better, if you’re here during the Christmas Market period, in the evenings you will get a snapshot of wonderful lights spread out across the square and Týn church. This tower can unfortunately get a bit crowded when sunset comes along, so bear this is mind.
For that Picture-perfect view, you can’t get better than the views from Petřín Hill. If you don’t want to climb tower steps, then this is right up your alley. You just hop on a funicular car and it will take you to the top in comfort (Tip - try and sit on the left, as this is where the best views are). Once you reach the top, there are fabulous vantage points. For those of you who don’t mind a climb, if you want to go one step further for an even higher view of the city, then you can climb up from this point to the Petřín Observation Tower.
The historical fort of Vyšehrad that looks out over the river, provides excellent views of the water and the city. Here, you can easily find a great place for viewing and there is also a map where you can check off different spots to see.
