Bohemian, Moravian, Silesian
Petřín is a hill that was turned into a public park. During the reign of Charles IV, in the second half of the 14th century, it was a vineyard as were many other hills in town. With a height of 318 m the Petřín Hill is a network of eight parks offering magnificent panoramas of Prague. Most of the vineyards from the 12th century were transformed into gardens and orchards by the 18th century and today it is a great place for quiet walks easily accessible from Hradčany and Strahov or by funicular railway from Újezd. The funicular has been in service since 1891.
This park also boasts the statue of the most famous poet of Czech Romanticism, Karel Hynek Mácha, author of a poem of love and tragedy called "May". On May 1, lovers come to the statue to kiss and lay flowers to remember the poet and bring good luck into their future relationship. Up the hill there is the Štefánik Observatory, the 60m high Observation Tower ? an imitation of the Eiffel Tower, the Hunger Wall that was built by the poor of the city in return for food in the 14th century, the Mirror Maze, the Church of St Lawrence and the wooden Church of St. Michael.
