  petrin funicular

just down karmlitska street from the communism statue is ujezd square and the funicular station. the funicular was originally built in 1891 to take people to the 1891 jubilee exhibition. it was closed between 1965 and 1985 due to a partial collapse of petrin hill. today the funicular has modern cars and station. you can also walk up petrin hill and it's beautiful park but it is quite a hike.
