Then we decided to climb up the highest point of Karlovy Vary where the observation tower “Diana” is situated. Since we needed to save energy (or we were just a little bit lazy) we took a funicular that took us on the top of the hill and then we just did the downhill on our own without any problems.
The tower was built in 1914. Observation deck on the top of ...
