We wanted to maximise our time spent within the city so decided against walking up the hill and opted for the cable car at Ujezd station. After all, we were trying to broaden our horizons and withstand any attempted endurance test. Maybe not this time...More

Okay, probably not the best thing to go on when you don't like heights, so quickest visit ever to enjoy the views from the top before coming straight back down to earth. If you love heights, get some exercise and walk up the steps tot...More
