Why locals love it

This romantically looking tunnel from the beginning of the 20th century is so different and fascinating! It´s lenght is just few meters but the location is amazing. The tunnel takes you through a rock on which you can find a mysterious fortified area called Vyšehrad with history dating back to the 10th century.

Why you should visit it

If you want to explore more than just Prague downtown, take a tram and in just 10 minutes you can be away from the city madness. The tunnel is situated on a river bank so the tram ride is perfect for sightseeing, too. This tunnel is the shortest and the oldest Prague road tunnel and its decoration resembles entrance to the medieval castle.

Special tip

You can easily reach the tunnel by walking and take great pictures from the pavement.

The location pin is incorrect - there is just a locked gate. The access path is across the road about 50m north of the pin.

Hello Mick, you can take a tram (for exmple number 17) and get off on Výtoň, then simply walk to the tunnel:) Later you can hike up to Vyšehrad area. Enjoy!
