  • Diana lookout tower is a very nice place for a wonderful trip with children. The escalator tower tightrope, which is the first experience for the kids and another on the lookout tower is a smaller Zoological Garden, where they have beautiful peacocks, who are ochočeny and you can even stroke and especially children are attracted are domestic pigs, which you will run both dogs, if you give them something to eat, mainly bananas, which they love, but there is also other critters. There is a restaurant, where you can refresh yourself or in the beautiful slunečněm day to sit in the garden, and the kids are having fun here on a smaller playground with climbing frames and swings. Another interesting observation is the Butterfly House, where to go, there's certainly lots of colorful butterflies, who's also on you. And of course don't forget to check out the lookout, which is a beautiful view of the surroundings. A visit to the tower is for both couples and families with children, whether they are small children or older children.

  • The tower it is possible to take a cable car up comfortably, as well as on the same tower by lift, suitable for old people. If you plan to visit from the tower and other places. other towers, prepare to be relatively bad, confusing marking paths. The tower is a map with markings, but the highlight of the local environment for humans is not much of a guide. There is unfortunately used classic, certified marking tourist marks (only partially), go in the right direction from the Tower eg. Charles Tower may not be able the first time around.
