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.

Vysehrad Castle and the surrounding district is less than a mile from the heart of Prague and is easily reached by metro and then a short walk. the quiet park area includes a view of surrounding areas and a variety of religious buildings, cemetery and the Church of Saints Peter and Paul.

The architecture of this castle is amazing. It gives you feeling of this country and its traditions. It was interesting to see the change of the guards. We could see tourists from many countries there.

Three weeks ago I took the Metro out to Vyšehrad, and it was a wonderful and leisurely afternoon. I visited the cemetery, where Jan Neruda, Bedřich Smetana and Antonín Dvořák are interred. The interior of the church is absolutely impressive, I was especially impressed with the Art Nouveau paintings. The grounds of the castle and fortifications are wide and sprawling,... More

We visites Vysherad by train. A lovely fwe hours out and well worth a visit. There are a few nice restaurants serving delicius food. The church is ancient and houses many relics. The cemetery has the famous composer Smetana's burial plot.
