Petrin Hill hotels
Petrin Hill is a concentration of parks and historic structures located on a hill n the centre of Old Town Prague. Visitors are drawn to the older sights like the medieval Hunger Wall, which is the remnant of a fourteenth century defence wall made from marl quarried in the area. The Petrin Lookout Tower, which is similar to the famous Eiffel Tower, is a newer landmark from the nineteenth century. At sixty metres, the tower is challenging to climb, but one can enjoy a view of Old Town with little effort using the funicular to the top of Petrin Hill.
- Tour the breathtaking Theological and Philosophical Halls of twelfth century Strahov Monastery, and admire the antiquities exhibited in the monastery library, such as the fifteenth century bible that belonged to Jan of Šelmberk.
- Admire the sun, moon, stars, and solar system via high-powered telescopes and view interesting astronomy exhibits and films at the Štefánik Observatory and Planetarium on Petrin Hill in Prague.
- Enjoy concerts by major international music stars such as the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, U2, and Pink Floyd at Prague's Strahov Stadium.
Ruzyně International Airport is only six kilometres from Petrin Hill, and the least expensive transport options to the city are the airport shuttle bus, the public buses, and hotel shuttles, which are more expensive than regular buses but cheaper than taxis. One can arrive in Prague from German, Austrian, and Czech Republic cities via the European EC rail, direct night trains, and international coach buses. The historic areas, like Petrin Hill, are served by electric trams to reduce pollution, but one can use the bus or underground to access most of the other tourist attractions.
