On the side of Petrin Hill
are two buildings. The first is the wonderfully situated Nebozizek Restaurant
. The other is
Petrinske Terasy Pub. Both are built on a level with Prague Castle
(which occupies the neighbouring hill), and both offer stunning views over Prague.
If you've been exploring the attractions at the summit of Petrin Hill, Petrinske Terasy is just a short walk down, somewhere to enjoy a beer, a coffee or a hot chocolate all year round, and to soak up the panorama.
During winter, the inside of the pub is a warm respite from the cold exposure of the hill. This may be the centre of Prague, but for walkers traipsing through the snowy woods and parkland of Petrin Hill, it has the feel of a forest in the wilderness.
In the summer, a large terrace opens in front of the pub, where visitors can enjoy a drink and bask in the sunshine (hopefully!), and watch the sun gleam over the red rooftops and spires of Prague.
Whether you visit Petrinske Terasy Pub or the slightly more formal Nebozizek Restaurant, allow plenty of time. Order one extra drink. Petrin for us here at Prague Experience, particularly on a fine weather day (temperature does not matter, but clear skies help), is one of the pleasures of Prague.
To get to Petrinske Terasy from the Lesser Town (Malá Strana), take the funicular up Petrin hill from Ujezd street. Alight at the first stop, and Petrinske Terasy is situated 200m to the right. Alternatively, catch a taxi or take a 15 minute stroll up Petrin hill. The climb is steep, but the walk is pleasant, passing through gardens and an apple orchard.
On the return, either catch the funicular or a taxi or walk down into the Lesser Town and stroll across Charles Bridge.
