Dear friends, this for many the most romantic track in Prague will take you around the most beautiful part of the Prague Petřín Hill, you will not miss the Petřín Lookout Tower, Mirror Maze, Rose Garden or Strahov Monastery. You will pass the places with the most beautiful views and in case of good visibility you will see also the distant surroundings of Prague.

In the end the track will take you to Prague Castle. You can take a walk also in the evening or at ni-ght.The lanterns will be shining nicely and you will feel the atmosphere of the mysterious or even mystical Prague.

The starting point of our track will bet the top stop of the Petřín funicular (1) which has been in operation since 1891. The funicular railway was built in relation to the construction of Petřín Lookout Tower in order to make it easier for the Praguers to walk up the lookout tower. The operation of the funicular started on July, 25th, 1891. It was the longest funicular railway of its time across Austria-Hungary. The funicular runs all year long, one drive takes 3 minutes (including the stop at Nebozízek). The funicular follows the same track as it did during its opening.

We will continue to the right on the pavement straight into the garden full of roses, fittingly called the Rose Garden (2). The entire gardens of Petřín rank nowadays among the largest green areas in the centre of the midtown. However, their name means the opposite. The name Petřín was described already in Cosma´s chronicle as a very rocky place (petra = rock in Latin), where the marlstone was quarried and out of which numerous Prague buildings were built of. As the centuries passed by, vineyards were set up on the slopes of Petřín. Later Petřín was dividend into several gardens that were cultivated mainly in 1830´s. http://www.praguecityline.com/favorite-walks/free-pdf-tourist-guide-prague-city-line-from-petrin-hill-to-prague-castle http://www.praguecityline.com/favorite-walks/free-pdf-tourist-guide-prague-city-line-from-petrin-hill-to-prague-castleGradually also the individual landmarks and statues were built in the gardens ….
