Monument to the dead of hunger at the foot of the funicular leading to the viewpoint of Petrin. Hunger Wall is a wall, across the park, extending almost from the Vltava river, at the height of Ujezd station where the cable car up to the Strahov Monastery. Why is that name? Certainly not devoured passers or anything like that ... This wall was built in the time of Charles IV, between 1360 and 1362, when a famine seriously affected the city. The emperor decided to expand defensive fortifications south of Malá Strana, using especially the poor and providing in return food for themselves and their families. Petrin Hill rises up to 327 meters south of Malá Strana. In the past provided the stones necessary for the construction of houses and monuments in the city now, its forested slopes and adorned with gardens provide a very nice to walk around enjoying the best views of Prague and river. The most recent of his gardens is a beautiful rose garden dating from 1931, a very nice visit in the warmer seasons. The park really enjoy Prague Petrin; each station the "dress" of colors and different sensations. Even in winter, people will get to walk through the streets breathing the cleanest air and pure, or for children to enjoy snow games. It may also be the occasion to interest to astronomy by taking them to visit the planetarium. You can go to the top on foot, watching the squirrels that appear everywhere, or take the funicular tram stop Ujezd. Falling at the first stop you can go to the restaurant Nebozizek and admire the views of the city while enjoying a good meal. Markéta Lehecková
