Prague Transit
řín Funicular


This is the only surviving Funicular in Prague. It links the Mala Strana district at the lower lever with Petrin Hill. The line consists of 3 stops. One car is stopped at the center stop, the second car is stopped in the middle of the line with no station as they are linked, plus the passing track is not as the middle stop. The line has been rebuilt a few times in its life, the last being in 1985 (after a 20 year closure).
