    Horse carriage tour

    by croisbeauty Updated Oct 2, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Horse carriage city tour, in so-called fiaker, is very popular in the Central Europe. Fiaker is expression for a carriage which has its number (sort of registration) and is official transportation for the tourists.
    The horse carriage departing from Starovetske namesti, offering city tour which can last maximum one hour. The price is pretty high, 108 euros which is much more then it cost in Vienna.

    city tour

    by croisbeauty Updated Oct 2, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are few companies in Prague offering city tour in a vintage cars, old-timers and completely renovated vehicles manufactured in the period from 1928-1935. The cars are for 1-4 people with English speaking driver. You can order hotel pick up but only if the hotel is situated in the city center, oterwise the cars are available at the Starovetske namesti.
    The vintage car city tour is, in my opinion, very expensive:
    1 hour for 1-4 people cost 60 euros, and it is the lowest price (some ask 79)
    2 hours for 1-4 people cost 120 euros.
    In case of 2 hours tour some companies offering a bottle of chanpagne, free of charge.

    You will cross Vltava River and its well-designed bridges and feel the city from a little bit different perspective. You also will visit the little canal next to the river.
    Don't expect too much of it. We found this trip enjoyable and interesting. The captain was polite and very helpful.
    Only one minus: their marketing techniques were pretty aggressive.

    Trip includes:

You will learn about the bridges, buildings, attractions and monuments alongside that part of the river.

    The trip involved floating on both sides of the Charles Bridge, then down to Manes Bridge, across to the Kampa Island canal, and than back to the Old Town canal.
    Total 45-50 minutes.

    Days: daily all year long

    Opening hours:
    Cruise departs every full hour.

    October - March
    Every day 10:30 - 18:00 (last boat departs at 17:00)

    Traveling by train

    by croisbeauty Updated Sep 26, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It need something less than 5 hours to get from Vienna to Prague. The train ride is comfortable but not too interesting because along the way there is not much to see. I have spend most of my time in reading a book and dozing. Train stops at a dozen roadside stations so that passengers often wandering and sometimes disturbing.
    Once upon a time passengers in the trains used to chat and so bided time, now however, most of them enjoy their laptops or mobile phones.

    The funicular has three stops: Ujezd (at the bottom of the hill), Nebozzzek (the middle station) and Petrin (at the top of the hill).

    The line was originally opened in 1891, with a length of 383 metres (1,257 ft). This line was closed with start of the First World War in 1914.

    The current longer line (Length: 510 metres (1,673 ft)) opened in 1932 with a different track gauge and completely new equipment but an earth movement in 1965 caused the service to be suspended. It was reopened only in 1985.

    The funicular is operated by the trams division of the city transport company.

    The funicular is open daily except the regular closure in March and October:
    winter season (November - March) runs from 9.00 to 23.20 hours on a 15 minute interval,
    summer season (April - October) runs from 9.00 to 23.30 hours on a 10 minute interval.

    The funicular is part of the Prague public transport network, so accepts the single tickets and passes used on trams, buses and the metro. You can also purchase a ticket before boarding (32.00Czk)

    Balloon tour

    by kris-t Written Sep 9, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tour starts at Na Vrcholu 7, Prague 3 and offers an hour-long ride in a hot-air balloon for around 4,700Kc Monday to Friday or 5,200Kc on weekends.

    The takeoff is usually from Konopiste, about 40km (25 miles) south of Prague, so your trip there can be easily combined with a visit to Konopiste Castle.

    PETRIN HILL FUNICULAR

    by balhannah Written Sep 4, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After looking at the Communism Memorial, we walked back along Uzejd Street to the Funicular Station. We had a DAY TRANSPORT TICKET which gave us FREE travel on the Funicular railway.
    It was back in 1851, when the Funicular began heading up and down Petrin Hill. AT the start, it worked on water overbalance mechanism, then in 1932, changed to electricity. It didn't operate for 20 years because of landslides, only beginning again In 1985 with new cars and a reconstructed track.

    Best to take the Funicular UP THE HILL and walk back down the hill

    OPERATES DAILY 9 - 11:30pm
    It runs every 15 minutes in the winter seasons (October – April)
    Every 10 minutes in the summer season (April – October).

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Again if you don’t feel like walking the whole day or just don't know town well enough yet there is an other solution which could be right for you.

    Honestly we do not know how to call this 'little something' (if you do, please tell us!), therefore we called it 'golf cart'. You will see lots of them in Prague.

    Tour is about $20.00

    In Prague you can see how Segway is starting to be a leader in personal, green transportation, transforming the way you explore the town.

    Experience it yourself:

    1 hour - Price: 40 EUR
    2 hours - Price: 60 EUR

    For now it's a bit costly but what stop me, an old photoholic, it's perspective to keep both hands on the handle bar... hm... how I will take pictures of e v e r y t h i n g?!?
