Petrin is worth a visit. At the bottom there's the fading man statue
, the funicular
railway takes you up, at the top there's a rose garden
, a park
for picnics, a great view
of Kampa and the Old Town from a little-known spot in front of the Strahovsky monastery, a mirror labyrinth
, the 'rozhledna', Prague's very own Eiffel Tower
(approx the same height if you include the hill underneath) and, best of all, a free exhibition
in the tower's basement dedicated to Jara Cimrman, the Czech Republic's favourite historical character who... wait for it... never existed. A fictional character. They must have had so much fun putting the exhibtion together.http://www.prague.net/blog/article/25/museum-...The
place to eat is Cafe Louvre
) which does plenty of Czech food but also has a cheap lunchtime menu.
Off the beaten track are the sculptures
of enfant terrible
David Cerny including the giant car-sized babies crawling up the tv tower, the upside-down horse hanging from the roof of the Luzerna Pasaz (just off Vaclavske namesti) and the peeing men statue outside the Kafka Museum in Kampa. Two men pee onto a map of the Czech Republic, there's even a telephone number on the floor next to it and they'll pee out a message for you.
I'll post any more ideas I have.
