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.

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.

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
