The "Petřín Lookout Tower" is like the pragueish version of the famous parisian Eiffel Tower. It is very similar but not that large.

Nevertheless the tower is one of the highest buildings in the city of Prague and gives you a perfect possibility for a panoramic view over the river, the bridges and the whole old town.

Yeah that's great and I would love to see everybody to do it in this way, because this would help us all so much, especially if you haven't been somewhere and just don't know about things like the windows you mentioned. Thanks again for your effort, I really appreciate that!
