I actually went here (to Vitkov) in the middle of snowy January with my friend Danielle who has sadly moved back to Canada. See that post here.
As I said in that blog post, you can see the National Monument (giant horse statue on a hill near the TV tower with babies climbing up) from essentially anywhere in the center-ish of Prague.
When traveling through Prague, you can easily regain your sense of direction by looking for one of four places: Petrin Tower, Prague Castle, the TV Tower, or the National Monument. Good luck actually getting to the National Monument though. It’s positioned atop a cliff.
Instead of making our way up a steep slope or climbing an extremely long flight of stairs, we took Tram 09 to the Ohrada stop, walked over a highway, and then slowly made our way to the monument from behind.
