Replica of Petrin

Petrin

Petrin's tower is in the Czech Republic, in Prague. There, it is called the Petrínská rozhledna. Measuring 63.5m, it is approximately at a scale of 1:6th. It is not a replica strictly speaking but it is technologically inspired by the Eiffel Tower. Indeed, they share this metal construction made of braces maintaining a vertical architecture going in decreasing width. Another common point is that the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Eiffel Tower are similar in layout to the two floors of the Czech tower. But the resemblance stops there because it is actually made of a cylindrical pylon surrounded by a metal frame and it is octagonal, where the Eiffel Tower has a square plan.

This tower seems very similar at first glance, but in fact it differs a lot from the Parisian tower.
