The Vysehrad fortress was one of the highlights of our stay in Prague. The interiors of the church are breathtaking and standing by the grave of Dvorak was a special experience for us. The entire site has a unique atmosphere and the views are great. As suggested by our guide, we visited the fortress on Saturday morning and descended down... More

Great architecture, beautiful streets and buildings and a lovel restaurant at the entrance. A great place to walk in the sunshine and admire the surroundings. A must along with Prague Castle and Charles Bridge.

Go there! Easy access and a flavour of what Prague is all about. See the views and the memorials to Bohemia's great figures.

Just a short walk from the metro stop of the same name,Vysehrad is a nice change from the touristy center. Great views of the city and the river, a quiet cemetery and old castle walls make this a great place too visit.

Like others, my wife and I found this a great place for a peaceful walk in the historic fortress and much less touristed than most of Prague. However what makes this one of the high points of any trip to Europe ( and I have been there over 15 times) is the stunningly beautiful and powerful frescos(?) that cover every... More

If you have an extra day and just want a more open outdoor experience, take the metro to Vysehrad, walk behind the conference center to the Vysehrad grounds and en dup at the cathedral stairs down to the tram #17 to return to town. It's a very refreshing and relaxing outdoors stroll through this monument.

I visited in the early evening. It's a very pleasant way to spend an hour or two in Prague. Just wandering around, you can get really nice views of Prague and also exploring the buildings and statues in the Vysehrad area. It feels very local. When I went, there were almost no tourists. Only locals going out for a jog,... More

The old walls are impressive, views are phenomenal and it would make a fantastic location for a picnic in the summer. There isn't a massive amount to see but all the attractions are low cost or free and we found them pretty interesting. For me one of the attractions is it's clearly a place frequented by locals as well as... More
