The mirror maze on the Petrin hill in Prague is quite a small one and during the summer periods can be really crowded, but it can also be a lot of fun. Usually, you need to wait in line in order to get in front of one of just 15 distorting mirrors. Nevertheless, it can be lots of fun, especially if you are in a good company or maybe seeing these mirrors for the first time.
This Mirror Maze on Petřín Hill in Prague is located close to the Petřín observation tower. It was built in 1891 for the Jubilee Exhibition as one of the exhibition pavilions. The inspiration for building a maze with the entrance in the form of a gate originated from the former Gothic gate of Vyšehrad in Prague, called Špička (Peak). This small mirror maze consists of 35 regular mirrors and 15 distorting ones. The most interesting part of the maze are the 15 distorting mirrors, and it is not hard to imagine that not only children laugh to the images in them. In addition, there is also a room dedicated to a well-known scene of the Czech fighting the Swedes on the Charles Bridge in 1648.
