The location can also be called the Grand Canyon and even though it isn’t as big as the Grand Canyon, it’s a location. The quarry is  approximately 750 meters long and 70 metres deep.

A location with amazing views of the Old Town and Lesser Town. And you do not have to climb the tower! Especially it’s one of the most romantic places in Prague, although the park is well worth a trip in each season. The Petrin Tower, inspired by the Eiffel Tower, has been constructed 1891 and it’s 65 metres tall. You could even visit with a mirror maze that’s located next.
