Well worth the short metro ride from the town centre. Drop into the visitor centre just inside the gates to pick up a guidebook.

The Castle was good but this is better. There is a great ride through the park, which has great walks too and nice cafes too. Loved to exhibition tower, great views I took load of pictures, but we upset the locals by coming down the wrong way. Great views of a church, stadium and the rest of Prague. The fernicular... More

I am a long time lover of Prague and if you have more than a couple of days in Prague and you've seen all the sights, go spend a few hours in the lovely, lovely Vysehrad. The Church there is divine - a miracle of Art Deco. The cemetery is home to a few famous Czechs and don't miss the... More

All those who visit Prague will include Prague Castle in their itinerary and so they should. However they should also include Vysehrad in their trip. In fact I would suggest a visit to Vysehrad first and then go to Prague Castle to get a real feel for the history of Prague. There is a wonderful contrast between the old and... More

This is a good place to walk, look around and explore art styles in every single building. You can make great picrures, visit church and cemetry.

An old castle complex, rebuilded into a stronghold hides a beautiful park, some of the Prague's oldest monuments, a church that resisted Hussite Wars and a nice pub with nice beer, nice svařené víno and nice panoramic view at the city.

I was getting a little tired of the touristy nature of Praha 1, and had planned to visit Vysehrad anyway. I was very impressed. The lady at the information centre was very helpful. The views of the Vltava river were amazing and the park was well maintained with food stalls and historical churches. I especially enjoyed the cemetery as a... More

Fantastic views of the river and the more famous castle downriver. Don't miss the basilica and the accompanying cemetery. This a quiet place, well away from the press of the old town. There are some open spaces where young kids could run around, though no playgrounds. Stroller or wheelchair friendly for the most part. There is a gallery that contains... More
