Python - reverse a string

0 points
Created by:

In this article, we would like to show you how to reverse a string in Python.

Quick solution:

reversed_string = string[::-1]

Where the statement [::-1] means:

  1. start at the end of the string,
  2. end at position 0,
  3. move with the step -1 (step backwards)


Practical example

In this example, we use a slice that steps backwards to reverse the string.

string = "ABC"
reversed_string = string[::-1]

print("Original string:", string)
print("Reversed string:", reversed_string)


Original string: ABC
Reversed string: CBA
