The Petřín Mirror Maze is one of the most popular sights of Prague for adults and children

The maze was built in 1891 according to a model of the Vyšehrad Gothic gate Peak (Špička). The building was designed as an exhibition pavilion for the General Land Centennial Exhibition. The mirror maze at Prater in Vienna most likely served as an inspiration.
