After 3 days in the beautiful but very crowded centre of Prague we wanted somewhere for a more relaxing walk and this is just the place. It's only 10 minutes by tram or Metro from the centre. When you get off the tram there are no directions but it's obvious how to get to the castle area - up! At... More

Best church in Prague, from my point of view. Great park and cemetary. Very nice views of Prague in the distance and the River. We walked from Charles Bridge down there, as it was sunny , along the river bank. An hour walk, but worth the trip, and so much nicer to admire the gorgeous buildings along the way, without... More

Vyšehrad Castle is about 50 years younger than Prague Castle. The most famous ruler of the Premyslides Dynasty was the first Czech king Vratislav, who founded the rotunda of St. Martin, the Basilica of St. Lawrence, the Chapter and the Church of St. Peter and Paul. Now that Basilica is in neo-gothic style. At the end of the 19th century... More

Very interesting church and the associated graveyard. The surrounding park gave a great view of Prague, the Castle and the surrounding area. When you leave walk down to the U Kroka restaurant for a good reasonable meal.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of central Prague, this is the place to go to! This rocky hill in the southern part of Prague has been inhabited since prehistoric times. (Thus St.Martin Rotunda, one of the oldest and best preserved 11th century monument in the city.) Situated within the historical fort you will find... More

Quite hard to get to (easiest is by Metro Line C), but worth visiting for the fine views up and down the Vltava river, and the fascinating cemetery with spectacular tombs of famous artists and composers (Dvorak, Smetana, Mucha etc.). If you walk down the hill afterwards, you can catch a tram back to the city centre.

We adore the music of Czech composer Antonin Dvorak and so we always wanted to visit his last resting place. The cemetery where he is laying is dedicated to great Slavs and is well worth a visit for its fantastic Art Nouveau-Monuments dating mainly from the 19th century. Dvorak´s grave is adorned by a most elegant "golden shower". We went... More
