Info text

Prague is a beautiful town and adults are never bored here. Nonetheless, children, who see the world differently might become victims of boredom. Very few visitors know that Prague also offers many attractions for the little ones. Prague residents and their offspring know about them. We prepared for you a pleasant and undemanding children's

route. You will see monuments children will understand and most importantly value. In addition, a ride on the cable railway is possible, there are children's playgrounds, feeding the swans, beautiful gardens, etc. The route can be easily combined with other routes we offer, for example with the route through the Lesser Town.

0.0km / 0.592km 1. Funicular

Info text

The lower station of the funicular, which will take you to the top of the Petrin hill, is located near the Ujezd tram stop. The funicular is part of the city’s public transportation system and runs at regular intervals all through the day. You will need a 26CZK ticket to ride it, the fare for children is half-price. Tickets can be bought at a machine in the station, in smoke shops or in subway stations. The station also displays a map of the funicular railway, which was opened in 1891 on the occasion of the Jubilee exhibition, and looking through the glass wall you will see the machinery that has been used to operate the funicular since the early 20th century. The current funicular railway

is 510 meters long, it rises up 130 meters and rides at 4m/sec. The cars exit stations exactly on time, one of the reasons being that the one track railway splits into two a bit below the middle station and the cars pass each other there. On the way up you will get to admire beautiful views of Prague. We recommend that you ride all the way to the top station Petrin, where you can walk around the rose garden or enter the close-by Stefanik’s Observatory, which is a cultural and technical facility that aims at the popularization of astronomy and other related fields. The observatory organizes public observations of the sky all year long during the day and at night, provided the sky is clear.

The park is perhaps the biggest green area in Prague, ideal for romantic summer walks in the rose gardens. Petrin is an extinct

volcano, which isn’t obvious today, but it still is shaped very conveniently to enjoy for amazing views of Prague.
