China and Paris in Prague?

April 8, 2009 — Jason del Sur

We spent the next day visiting “Paris” and “China” in Prague. Several years ago, the city of Prague wanted to boost tourism and was wondering what Paris had that Prague didn’t. The answer: the Eiffel Tower. So within a couple years, they had erected a miniature version on Petrin Hill. The top of this mini-eiffel is the same height above sea level as the real Eiffel tower, therefore, naturally making them equal.While the structure itself was not particularly impressive, the view of the city from the top was quite breathtaking.

Near the bottom of the hill and reaching nearly to the top, there is also a miniature version of the Great Wall of China. I never got the story behind that one, and while equally underwhelming as well, it did a wonderful job at amusing us. View from the top:
