We came here on the last day of our visit to Prague and it tied everything up nicely. From the top of the park - which is high above the city noise - you can see almost 360 degree views, including the favourite tourist spots in the distance. The cemetery in the middle of all of this contains some famous... More

This is the castle on the other side of the river. Legend has it that it is older than Prague Castle, though archeology does not support that claim. There is an old romanesque church, lots of park to walk through, lots of nooks and corners to lose yourself in. I like cemetaries as well, and there is one here packed... More

We spent about half a day in this lovely area. There are small and large wooded and grassy gardens for relaxing. We also enjoyed the superb scenic vistas and the cemetery where the classical composers Antonin Dvorak, Bedrich Smetana, and Joseph Suk are buried. We found so many kinds of statues (from small busts to monoliths) and odd-shaped decorative headstones... More

I am not a huge history enthusiast, and I tend to find castles overwhelmingly touristy. However, Vysehrad was not at all overrun with tourist traps, gift shops and loud groups of people. Walking along the fortress includes a beautiful panoramic view of the city surrounding the river. There are several attractions in Vysehrad as well, including a fascinating cemetery.

If you need some quiet place just to relax and "recharge your batteries" from busy city, this is a right place for you. Nice park with old historic buildings.

Have a wander around some gravel paths on top of the old walls, see the priory and generally relax. Nothing amazing here but a great contrast from the tourist trap stare mesto and if you have more than 3 days I would definitely include it.

The church, the cemetery, bells ringing, the splendid views of the city and the river. There is a park and we stumbled upon some sort of festival taking place which was quite nice.

First of all I wasn't aware of the fact that it's a church. It's a bit far away from the city center and there is not that much to see so you might consider selecting something else to see if you don't have much time in Prague.

Everything was wonderful at this easy to access but slightly out-of-the-way place. Little mini Basilica of Peter and Paul was so incredibly beautiful, the cemetery was so interesting, and there was even an excellent little art gallery. Views of the city are stunning from here

Wow, we were living next to it, visited it and it's nice. Theres a part where you can get fantastic pictures of the vltava river(not facing the town center).. Church is also very ornate and nice with a interesting cemetery around it.
