Prague funicular is a railway that starts off in Lesser Town and goes all the way up to Petrin Hill. This is a great idea for Prague day trips, as it offers a great view of the place beside the hill, which consists of a wooded area. The hill has many interesting things for its visitors, as it offers a view of its gardens and it also allows the visitors to visit the Observation Tower which is at the top of the hill. It can be very easy to confuse the Petrin Hill with the Petriny, which is a neighborhood in Prague; however, they are not related to one another.
If you want, you can also dine at the Nebozizek Restaurant while on your way to the top of the hill, as the funicular makes a stop half way to the top of the Petrin where the restaurant is located. The funicular is only a part of the huge public transport system that Prague has, which is why any ticket that you may have bought for a bus, metro, or a tram ride is also applicable for the funicular. That is quite useful for a visitor who wants to enjoy the parks and panoramas of Prague, as they can use their ticket once for the tram and then for the funicular. In this method, you can enjoy the scenic natural beauty that the hill has to offer without having to spend more money to buy another ticket.
However, those that wish to travel by foot to the funicular, they can also purchase tickets at the bottom of the funicular, which is only a short stroll from the National Theater and the Charles Bridge, both of which are located at the same distance from the funicular, despite being on the opposite directions. If you want to travel with a group, there are many tour groups that you can opt to travel with, and the Segway tour in Prague is an example of one such group.
Travelling on the funicular can be a delightful experience, as there is a lot to discover at the top of the hill. You could easily spend a few hours visiting the attractions on Petrin Hill.
