Not a bad ride it last just over five minutes don't forget to buy and stamp tour ticket before going on. It's not as good as the one in Zurich but it's still fun to go on.

I was really disappointed with our treatment on the funicular railway. This was the first time we'd used public transport as we'd walked everywhere. We bought our ticket, not realising we had to have it verified. There was nothing on the signage to indicate this,...More

This is a modern funicular similar to the one on cairngorm but much shorter. Very frequent and the fare is included in your metro day ticket. Good panoramic views throughout the climb and a number of important attractions when you get to the top.

The view was OK... not wow. It was wired to pay 60 krones extra per person JUST for using an elevator... the price for the entrance was 150 krones per person.

Brilliant mode of transport. Well worth checking out especially if planning on climbing the petrin tower. 299 steps to top.

Take this train to get up to the Petrin hill, very nice view of the city from the top of the hill. Use the regular transportation ticket to get on, this train is included too.

You can walk up to Pertrin Tower and it's a reasonably gentle walk, but we like to try funicular railways and cable cars when we travel so we hopped on for a one way ride. It wasn't hugely busy when we did it but they...More

I'm always happy to get on a funicular, but it extra cool because they accept metro passes. It's probably the cheapest funicular I've ever ridden. It's great to ride up and then walk down, enjoying the various views of the city.

We didn't realise that our ticket we had bought for the metro would also be valid so this was a bonus - the queues move quickly and the railway takes you all the way up to the top of Petrin Hill, lovely views and very...More

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch
