nice and quiet

A very relaxing place to visit with spectacular views of Prague. Also lots to see here, a basilica, a cemetery and a church to name just a few of the sights.

Far off the beaten path, but worth the time. Excellent views along the walls and down the river. Enter the main gate and go up an to the right. Walk the outer walls and around the entire place. Sure looks like an old fort to me. Walk takes you to the middle where there is St. Peter and Paul Basilica... More

hill overlooking Prague, nice views but not spectacular. Went a few times as my hotel (Union) was nearby and enjoyed the open area with an many benches/bar/grill where also many local people go to relax during hot summer days

Vysehrad National Cultural Monument is a place with a church and a garden to relax. The stroll to this place is fun that you can see and feel the the old city environment.

This place, holy to the Czech nation, was honoured by Smetana in his Ma Vlast. And yes, the Moldau passes it as well. And the great composers, many directors of orchestras and artists have been buried here. And that is only the burial ground, to begin with. Nice walks on the hill, narvellous views, eating and drinking possiiblities as well... More

If you would like to rest a bit from the tourist crowd in Prague, try this semi-hidden place. Up the hill with an amazing view.

For our first visit in Prague in 2013 we never heard of Vysehrad--we only knew of Prague Castle. It wasn't until our second visit when a local took us to tour the "real" or fortress castle of Prague: Vysehrad. It has great views of the city, Petrin Hill, and Prague Castle and you get the sense that it was a... More

Catch a tram a few kms south of the main square and you will find Vysehrad perched high above the banks of the river. An imposing fortress now hosting gardens, restaurants and pubs. Its a glorious place to relax with a beer and spend a few hours. After all, that's exactly what the locals are doing.

Unlike many places in Prague, this one still feels authentic. Very nice park, super-old cathedral and fortress, great view of Vltava river and center of Prague. You can get the idea on their web: http://www.praha-vysehrad.cz/lang/l2. Also a great beer garden (very modest / real stuff local people would go to in summer).
