On a clear day, Petřín offers sweeping views of Prague and beyond. Rising some 130 m (420 ft) above the left bank of the Vltava River, the hill is one of the city's most popular recreational areas for both visitors and natives. The hill's dominant feature is a 62 m (200 ft) high lookout tower, inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Although you can scramble up the hill on foot, the easiest way to access the top is by a century-old funicular railway. Once there, you can climb the lookout tower's 299 steps for a small fee, or picnic in the park for free.

The route can also run well, but the trip is included via the day ticket.
It's really relaxing and I absolutely love it there!
Easily the most unique landmark in Prague. The climbing part is scary and the view at the top is brilliant. The upward tram ride is also one of a kind.
