  • It was summer when I visited this place. The way up to the tower by means of a Funicular or by footsteps way up to the mountain. From the top is a tower with a lift then you will have a beautiful panoramic view of the Karlovy Vary City of Spa and the green mountain view. I would suggest to visit also in the Autumn season when the leaves exhibit there shades of different colors!😍
  • very nice view!
