We just wandered around the Vysehrad castle grounds and enjoyed grounds and the views of the city. Its just far enough out of the way to keep the throngs of tourists at bay, but close enough that its still convenient.

Situated in the nearby Corinthia Hotel, we had gone into the city the day before and had this morning to while away some time. The ensuing walk resulted in entering the district of Vysehrad. A small Tourist office were not good with their English but continue into the well signposted village, for an absolute delight. Superb views of the river... More

Perfect place for a rest after spending time in crowded city center. There is a lovely view and a few small cafes, where you can sit down and relax.

You must enjoy walking a lot, but then the whole area is lovely. It is like a separate village. A jump in history.

Large and well kept estate, with gorgeous views of the city and beautiful gardens to have a picnic in. Quiet - not too many people here, even in peak season. We strolled around for 2 hours without noticing the time. A must visit.
