The Petřín Lookout Tower

It must be quite a view from up there!

Although it is much shorter than the one in Paris, this homage to the Eiffel Tower is impressive because sits atop Petřín Hill overlooking Prague. This shot is from February 2008.

From Wikpedia: In 1889, members of The Club of Czech Tourists visited the world exposition in Paris and were inspired by the Eiffel Tower. Later, they collected a sufficient amount of money and in March, 1891 the building of the tower started for the General Land Centennial Exhibition (1891). It was finished in only 4 months.
