For some fresh air, catch the funicular railway from Ujezd to the top of the 1,000-ft. (300 m) Petrin Hill, one of Prague's greenest spaces. The area's eclectic sights include landscaped gardens, a miniature version of the Eiffel Tower, a mirror maze and, quirkiest of all, the Church of St. Michael — a 17th century wooden building relocated here from a village in the Ukraine for national enlightenment.
