One of my top viewpoints of Prague. Nestled amidst Petřín gardens, just below the Strahov monastery, with Prague castle on the left, the Vltava river valley in front, and a miniature Eiffel tower on the right – stands this pure white statue of Panna Marie z Exilu (Our Lady of Exile).
You can reach it either by walking down through Úvoz street, taking the very first gate into Petřín on your right hand side (if walking up Úvoz, then it would be on your left). Take the asphalt path leading up and on the next crossing take the one following the contour line – sooner or later you will see a brown-white sign “SOCHA PANNY MARIE Z EXILU”. The way up to the statue is just a dirt path. Do not be confused if you cannot see the statue until the last moment!
When tired from the walk, you can refresh yourself in restaurant Malý Buddha (see the Maly Buddha article).
