Ještěd Aerial Cableway
The Ještěd cableway is among the oldest classical aerial cableways. It was financed by Czechoslovak State Railways and built by the renowned Chrudim company of František Wiesner. Construction was launched on 15 June 1932 and the completed cableway began operating on 27 June 1933. Between 1971 and 1975 the cableway underwent an extensive reconstruction as a result of which it became a world-class cableway. The reconstruction was performed by the company Transporta Chrudim and the reconstructed cableway began operating on 31 December 1975. During its many years of operation there has been no major failure or endangerment of passenger safety.
All aerial cableway journeys will require reservations. Therefore, each passenger must have a reservation for the aerial cableway in addition to a travel document prior to commencing the journey. This applies to each journey separately. Reservations are not issued for transporting dogs or bicycles.
