Mirror Maze, Prague

Mirror Maze, Prague (must see)

On Petrin Hill you will naturally come across a curious building. A replica of the Spicka gateway of the 10th-century Vysehrad Castle, it is the home of the Mirror Maze, which was introduced at the Jubilee Exhibition of 1891 and moved to Petrin Hill in 1892.

This is a really fun way to spend a couple of hours and it isn’t only reserved for children! First, you must make your way through the confusing labyrinth of the maze itself which comprises 31 ordinary mirrors. There were once 35 mirrors but four of them have been broken over the years and haven’t been replaced.

After the maze, you will come to a room with a wonderful diorama depicting the Battle of Charles Bridge of 1648, where invading Swedes were repulsed by the citizens of Prague. This beautiful painting is 80 square meters and was executed by Adolf and Karel Liebscher in only 50 days.

Another room has 14 convex and concave mirrors that will distort your reflection into many very funny shapes and sizes. It has well earned its name: the Laughter Hall. The Mirror Maze is open daily from April to October and the entrance fee is a reasonable price.

Why You Should Visit:
A good way to have fun and laugh.

Tip:
You can walk through as many times as you like.

Opening Hours:
November–February: 10am–6 pm; March: 10am–8pm; April–September: 10am–10pm; October: 10am–8pm
