  the Funicular coming up the hill

There is nothing like a Funicular. Any quirky method of transport that saves you wasting your precious sight-seeing energy by having to climb up steep hills is ok by me!

Prague's cheerful green and white Funicular has been in operation since 1891. It transports you from Ujezd, down near the river, up to the top of Petrin Hill, offering great views of the castle along the way.

Running everyday at around 10 minute intervals, the funicular is pretty popular and the queue can get very very long...perhaps you may have to walk instead...but think of the extra beer you can justify then!!
