    Diana lookout tower is a stone observation tower with a covered Gallery, which you can reach on foot along forest roads, of which there are many in the surrounding hills here and explore the tower by cable car. On foot you can hike to the lookout Diana hold an all-day event, in which case it is a good idea to take a comfortable good shoes. The cable car is a matter of about 10 minutes, with a stopover at Jelení jump. The season is usually on the bottom of the station from the Treasury to queue outside and perhaps all are spoken languages. In the morning, the lookout cloaked in formation, but during the day, when the weather is nice, the view of the wide surroundings. It is certainly good at home not to forget your camera, because everywhere there is always something to photograph. What belongs to the Diana is close to restaurants with outdoor seating, two peacocks, a tiny Petting ZOO animals and the newly built restaurants under the Butterfly House. A pleasant experience.
