Prague residents have been marking the 120th anniversary of the famous Petřín tower and funicular on Petřín hill. Organisers put together a series of events for visitors on Saturday which wrap-up at five pm local time. Free admission has been on offer for those arriving in 19th century costume. Historic vehicles, including antique fire trucks, are on view near the venue. Petřín Tower - the Czech capital’s answer to the Eiffel Tower in Paris – was completed for the Prague Jubilee of 1891.
