Vyshehrad is a huge castle. You will find there a prison, impresive defensive walls, a cemetery-a kind of national panteon, green spaces and Peter and Paul cathedral which was a big surprise. The hole church is decorated in Art Nouveu style.It is so beautiful I couldn't belive my eyes. Do not miss the place.There are not many tourists, the place... More

A visit to Vysehrad rounds off an understanding of the history of Prague alongside a view of the city from the South. St Peter and St Paul cathedral and the adjoining cemetery are worth a visit and the grounds are less crowded providing a relaxed stroll. We walked from here right up to Charles Bridege along the river Vl

It is a bit out of the way, so no crowds. Great views overlooking the river. Worth seeing Basilica of St Peter and St Paul and the cemetery when there. Just plan to take the tram or subway to the hilly part to start and then walk down, finishing at the tram close to the river.

Great place for a walk. Amazing view from all around the walls. A little bit far from city center, but reachable by team in 15 minutes

Walked there for a quiet morning. Amazing views onto the city and the river. The old heart of Prague and indeed Europe still beats here. It is hard to see how it would have been originally as it has been so developed in the 19th Century but the geography and location speaks for itself. The catherdral and churchyard are special....

Great place for walk, church Petr and Pavel and great park nearby. If not to cold! Great view from above on the city and the river of Vltava. Also has one of the oldest cemetery.

A little bit off the tourist circle, it is a very beautiful site with great views over the river. The cathedral in it is very impressive. One of the most beautiful sites in Prague.

Vysehrad (the first castle) and grounds are worth seeing. There were almost no tourists and some fabulous views of the city and River Vltava. We stayed in the Park Inn on the South Side of the city and Vysehrad was a very comfortable walk for us. Should say quite a lot of it was uphill but not difficult. There are... More

We caught the tram from the city. It went along the river bank past the dancing building. There is also a metro station nearby. Having caught the tram we walked up the hill. The views are amazing from the walls of the fort. You can walk round 360 degrees. From one side you have views over Prague and the Vltava... More
