Description

The Petřín Lookout Tower is a 63.5 metre tall steel-framework tower on Petřín Hill in Prague built in 1891. It resembles the Eiffel Tower and was used as an observation tower. A similarity between the Eiffel Tower and Petřín Lookout Tower is the design of the lowest cross beams in the form of round bones. Today the tower is a major tourist attraction. The Petřín Hill is roughly a half-hour walk up paths and the tower is also quite an arduous climb. However, the hill is served by a frequent Petřín funicular and the tower has an elevator for elderly and disabled people. In 2014 the tower was visited by more than 557000 visitors, with foreigners accounting for over 70% of said visitors. The two observation platforms are accessible via 299 stairs in sections of 13 per flight running around the inside of the structure. A pair of staircases form a double-helix structure allowing visitors travelling up and down concurrently. There are a gift shop and a small cafeteria on the main level. On the lowest level is a small exhibition area.A similarity between the Eiffel Tower and Petřín Lookout Tower is the design of the lowest cross beams in the form of round bones.
