I have spent almost 4 hours at this amazing place. Old cemetery, amazing chapel (and you must to see it from inside). The most important thing this place is not overcrowded, so you can really take a rest in the beautiful parks, squares and enjoy the amazing panorama of the Prague.

This area was my favorite. Peaceful and beautiful. Wonderful views of the city. Fabulous architecture. Incredible gardens. The cemetery was beautiful, too. I wish I had a guide when I went though the area. I'm sure I missed so much. I did find a museum of local artists in the gardens. I was too early for lunch, but the café... More

there is a kind of peace surrounding the Vysehrad area, which is amazing to experience. The higher you go, the better.

We learned that Vysehrad is the Old City of Prague. We made a nice long walk from the hotel through a bridge. The view is amazing. We have seen 2 marriages 1 art gallery and a cemetery where famous Czechs are buried. The park was not crowded we met only few tourists. There are several restaurants we choosed a cheap... More

Not many people go here and I don't know why!! This was actually my 4th visit to Prague and my 1st time here. I can't believe I passed this up the last 3 times! Here you will be able to see a few of the original statues from Charles bridge as the ones they have now are replicas. Spend a... More

Vyšehrad (Czech for "upper castle") is a historical fort located in the city of Prague, Czech Republic. It was probably built in the 10th century, on a hill over the Vltava River. Situated within the castle is the Basilica of St Peter and St Paul, as well as the Vyšehrad Cemetery, containing the remains of many famous people from Czech... More

The only downside is that for non-locals it's kind of difficult to navigate your way in and out of when trying to work out how to get there from (or get back from there to) the city. That said, it's only about a 10-minute walk from the Višehrad metro along a clearly marked path, and we walked back along the... More

Just a bit of the beaten track so made for an enjoyable day. In olden days it was a fortification to rival Prague castle when the area was not all one. Now it is a large park area nice to stroll around and some good view points of the river that you dont see from further up by Charles bridge.... More

Ok, if you are 'doing' Prague for the first time, then this is not the most spectacular sight it has to offer. But if you've had enough of the jostling and pricey city centre, this is a pleasant and restful place offering views, a bit of history and a choice of reasonably priced cafes.

The ancient grounds, somber yet beautiful cemetery, and the breathtaking views made this a memorable stop in Prague. Away from the hustle and bustle of Old Town lies this amazing sanctuary where you can stroll through the open grounds, peer out over the Vltava River, and just relax and let your time in the Czech Republic sink in. Along the... More
