Prague Public Transit Co., Inc. (DPP) and the Capital City of Prague have been preparing the general modernisation of the funicular to the Petřín hill transporting annually up to 2 million passengers. It is a popular means of transport used by local citizens, students, and visitors to Prague wishing to see Prague Castle or the Petřín Lookout Tower. The funicular should be modernised no later than in four years. Nevertheless, the expectation is that the first passengers could be welcomed at the end of 2023. Aside from the track also cars will be replaced with new ones. Their design is the subject of this Competition.
