So hey, did you know that Prague has an Eiffel tower…of sorts. I’ve wanted to go ever since I found out about it, but it took me a couple of visits to Prague to finally get to it. I got the chance this May when I travelled with friends which haven’t been to the city before. So when they wanted to go to the castle, my boyfriend and I decided we have already seen it a couple of times and we took the chance for a detour.
You can get to the tower (it is in a huge park on a hill) with a funicular which you can use with a normal city ticket. Or you can walk if you’re into that sort of thing…
You can get to the top of the tower with an elevator. Or you can take the stairs, if you’re into that sort of thing…
But I am not into that sort of thing. Stairs are my biggest enemy and winding stairs are their most horrible cousin.
I took the elevator up is what I’m saying.
It was a rainy day. The closed platform at the top of the tower was tiny and full of people. It was hard to walk past them and it was especially hard to get to the window and enjoy the view. I was angry at my boyfriend and I didn’t know if I wanted to be there at all.
Also I wasn’t that crazy about being in a metal and wood tower in the middle of what turned into a thunderstorm at one point.
But it was beautiful. And looking at the pictures now I feel like it was great.
