We visited Vysehrad on the recommendation of a couple we met on an e-bike tour and it did not disappoint. We took the Metro to the Vysehrad stop and walked (about 5 min and it's slightly downhill) to the monument area. There is a map when you come in to the park and info booth. We expected to see maps...

I wouldn't say its a must, but if you have the time definitely worth it. Went with my 16 years old daughter - we had 4 days in Prague. Loved the peace of the gardens and even sat and read for about half an hour. Good break after all the city walking around. Nice church and gorgeouss view. SO easy... More

We spent a couple of hours wandering round the attractive park and buildings. It was great to get away from the busy central area and spend some time in relative peace and quiet. Vysehrad isn't on everyone's itinerary but it was recommended to us by a tour guide and I'm glad we made it. We used the Hop On Hop... More

I'm not sure what the monument was! I never read up on it beforehand but had been told it was amazing. There was a map at the entrance to this park - which in itself is a pretty, relaxing area and has a great view of Prague, but there was nothing to explain what we were looking at or what... More

We were so happy to find this place. Away from tourist groups, and the view is so amazing. The cathedral and the gardens are beautiful. Perfect place for everyone who wants to avoid the crowds in the old town.

When you go to Vyšehrad, you should know, that it's a place with tons of stories and legends around it. It's a piece of a history itself. You can find some very nice gardens there, a lot of interesting buildings from many different centuries and some very special views on Prague. What a lot of people don't know is, that... More

The best time to visit this beautiful and relaxing area is in the morning before 10:30, just to not be caught by the hordes of tourists flowing from the crowded Old Town.

The place is generally nice, especially the cathedral because the interior is surprisingly different from the outer gothic looks ( the admission fee is only 30 kr). The cemetery is interesting, too, but i'm just not into this kind of attractions at all. After seeing all the other Prague attractions this place seems, well, kind of average. There are better...

It looks like Glasgow's Necropolis and despite I prefer Glasgow's version, it is worth for short visit.

Vysehrad was very easy to get to by metro, and a nice short walk through the gates. We walked throughout and were amazed at the history - loved St. George's round bldg., the cemetery, and the views both of Prague Castle and downriver are the best. Spent about 2 hours here.
