A castle with a nice garden and nice views to the river on one side and to the city on the other side. There is a church inside - need to pay an entrance fee though. The cemetery is also pretty nice.

It is a wonderful walk to do. Has a lot of interesting angles, wonderful views of Prague, churches, rotund, huge park and I especially love the Slavin cemetery. Most famous people of Czech nation are buried there, eg. Antonin Dvorak, Bedrich Smetana and many others. It is a pleasant walk when you are in no rush and want to get... More

This is very worthwhile as you get amazing views over the city and towards the Castle. There is also a graveyard full of famous Czech including Dvorak.

When I lived in Prague and on my most recent trip for Christmas December of last year, I often go here near sunset. Watching the sun cast shadows on the city below, then, the river, and finally looking back at the top of the church steeple catching the last of the sun for the day is beautiful. This area is...

Wow what a stunning view over Prague! The graveyard is also a must see! So many famous artists are buried there! A park next by where you can bring picknick basket!

We really enjoyed this place - known as the "Castle on the Hill" It is really an old monument - no real buildings to visit but lovely to walk through the area, great views of the city and you can access the Church of St Peter and St Paul - for the price of a "donation" worth entering. Suggest enter... More

We found Vysehrad Castle and it's grounds to be even more enjoyable than Prague Castle! First, it was less busy and more spacious. Secondly, it was more original and authentic than the more famous PC. We found it to be much more 'real' if you can use that term. It contains so many viewing points that you can see and... More

On our last day we strolled around this beautiful area - metro line C Vysehrad and a short walk to the park. The views were better than The Astronomical Tower and St Nicholas Bell Tower. After walking around the tranquil park and we visited the cemetery and admired the stonework - Bedrich Smetena and Dvorak are here. Stroll down the... More

My wife and I popped up here on our last day in Prague. We only had a few hours to kill but could've spent the whole day there relaxing in the sun! Had a tasty lunch at a cafe whilst sitting outside. We found our way up here by a bit of a roundabout route through old parts of the... More
