If you get yourself to Ujezd on the Trams and the Underground, you can then use your travel ticket again to get on the funicular railway to the top of Petrin Hill which overlooks Prague, here you will find a mini Eiffel Tower built as a centre piece for one of those great Expositions from years gone by.

Went to the park mid afternoon. It was brilliant. Lots of walks, lots to see. The views are great. The frost on the trees looked spectacular. Very well worth the trip

Exploring Prague on foot is a really rewarding experience, as every corner you turn reveals some unexpected treat - beautiful architecture, cosy bars and restaurants, street entertainers and tons more besides. It's all so close together, too, making getting around really easy. However, it you fancy venturing slightly further afield - and can face A LOT of steps, firstly through... More

We really enjoyed our trip here. We got the tram up and down, which I would highly recommend. The views over the city are wonderful. It is also a peaceful spot where you can walk and see the gardens. Definitely worth a morning or afternoon visit.

get a funicular up to Petrin Hill where you can enjoy lovely views, visit a mirror maze, and enjoy a nice day out. There is a bar and cafe at the top for you to enjoy some snacks and it is perfect for people of all ages.

We took the funicular, it is a part of Prague's public transport. Crazy long queue. But the ride was nice. But on top another long line for the tower so in the end we didn't go. But just from the hill itself there is no view of the city because of trees, you need to go up the tower. If... More

Get here early evening you will be able to go inside and have a great view of the city. Pretty creepy park after dark. 300 krona ride up then take the 30 minute walk back down to Charles bridge. Shops on this side are a little less expensive but do close early.

Loved this part of my visit took the funicular up to Petrina where there is a garden maze and mirror maze attraction which is very Harry Potter like. It was a quiet and peaceful part of the city away from the busy tourist hotspots and traffic. Plus there is a man incredible view of the city and the observation tower,... More

Certainly worth taking the funicular up. We wanted to get a view of the city so while the more athletic walked all the way up the tower, others took the lift which is an experience in itself: like entering an airlock in a submarine and only four at a time. The views are worth it. Walk down and take photos... More
