Petrin Tower Prague

Petrin Tower was built in Prague in 1891 for the purpose of an industrial exhibition. It was later moved to Petrin Hill where it is standing nowadays. The idea to build the tower came after the Eiffel Tower was first presented in Paris. Petrin tower resembles the famous Eiffel Tower in its visual design, that is why it was nicknamed the Prague Eiffel tower. It is 63.5 meters tall and is used as both lookout and transmission tower.
