  • Atmospheric place))) Be sure to climb the mountain on a cable car, take the elevator to the tower! Take a picture at altitude!!!! Drink a dark Crusovica beer in a restaurant on the street (toilet free, don't pay bakushis!!!) Plan a descent (if you have no restrictions!!!) without rushing, walking, through the line.

  • You can comfortably go up/down by cable car, or hike. The tower high (approx. 150 steps) is torturous, but the view... Beautiful! Entrance to the tower is free!
