Known as The steel framework tower in Prague is a 63.5 meter high, and strongly resembles the Eiffel Tower. The top is actually at a higher altitude than that of the Eiffel Tower. The Petřínská rozhledna was built in 1891 and was used as an observation tower as well as a transmission tower. Today it is a  tourist attraction. If you go up the hard way, the hill is roughly a half-hour walk up paths that get quite slippery when it snows, and the tower is a shorter but fairly tiring climb; however, the hill is served by a frequent funicular and the tower has an elevator for disabled persons. There is a gift shop and a small cafeteria on the main level. On the lowest level is a small museum of Jára Cimrman.
