I also wish I’d read the reviews. I walked from the castle and happened to see the funicular. I was glad to get a ride down the hill. I tried to find out how to buy a ticket but the woman working there just waved...More
A very cheap & pleasant afternoon. Caught the tram & used the same ticket to use on the Funicular. Nothing special, just a clean efficient way of getting up the hill. Timetable every 15 min. or so. After ascending the hill I walked around the...More
This is only a short but pleasant journey up the hillside to get to Petrin Hill and a great starting point to then walk back down to the Monastery, brewery, Prague Castle and Lesser Town. Payment at the start is a little confusing but if...More
Finding the ticket office was a challenge but the brief trip up was lovely. The gardens, monastery and observatory are well appointed. The monastic tradition of stations of the cross was evident besude the walkways. A delightful setting. Pity about the officious ticket-seller and the...More
My children wanted to visit Petrin Tower so we used the railway to get to the top of the hill. You can use your tram/metro tickets on this ride. It was a nice experience using this method of transport. People complaining of being scammed, you...More
Wish I had read the reviews before warning of the scam regarding the bully techniques employed to try and get you to pay a “fine” of 800 CZK per person. Please click on all the reviews that have given this 1 star and read about...More
We took the Funicular to the top of Petrin Hill as it was free with our Prague card.

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
shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
