On my second day while riding the tram I passed by a hilly park and saw people walking up the stairs, so I went down the tram and found a funicular sign along the street, went in and luckily, my tram ticket is still valid for this funicular ride (75-minutes ticket). Took the funicular train up to the gardens on top of the hill and as usual --- follow the people.

And saw this tower sort of a smaller version of Eiffel. The hill is called Petrin. The tower is constructed as a transmission and observation tower.

Entrance fee to the tower is 100 CZK, half price for students, and the way up is through stairs, elevators for physically challenged.
