Myself and my boyfriend went to take the funicular railway up to the Petrin lookout tower. We managed (with some difficulty) to purchase tickets (costing 32kc) from the machine. A woman came out of the ticket office to open the barrier then had disappeared again...More

A mode of transport only, a chaotic one at that, there’s certainly nothing to see on the way up, or any comfort to be had inside the carriages! The queuing system is terrible - you need to get a ticket from the kiosk or one...More

A visit to Prague is not complete without experiencing the Funicular Railway. Within walking distance of the Old Town (about 40 mins) and easy to find. The locals use and it was a great experience even though it’s only a 5-10 minute ride. As we...More

We got free tickets from our hotel and we wanted to use the funicular just to experience it as a bit of fun; wish we hadn't. To walk to the top doesn't take long and in fact it was quicker than the day we visited....More

We took the train up to Petrin tower to save on the legs. Runs every 15 minutes so you have to wait in the ticket hall for the train to arrive. This does mean a busy rush to get on board. Tickets from the machine...More

Our whole experience was tainted from the very start by the rude service staff at the bottom. There were around 30 people in the small entrance trying to work out how the systems worked. There is an option for English but still struggled to know...More

We found this attraction as it was on the route of the Hop on Hop off bus trip around Prague. It was well worth stopping off on our way around. The Funicular railway was easy walking from the bus and only for a small cost....More

We waited at least an hour in the queue and were very disappointed when we got to the top. I’m sure the gardens look beautiful in the summer but not in December! The view is heavily blocked my trees so we didn’t get any good...More

There was a small queue, but only waited about 15/20 mins. The ride was only short but saved the walk up what looked like a steep hill. View from top was amazing.

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
