This December we went to Vysehrad the day after we went to Prague Castle. It's a park set on the site of the other major castle location in Prague. The views are beautiful and we loved walking around on the paths.The cemetery is small but houses the remains of many famous Czechs and the neighboring cathedral is very pretty. Since... More

This is a lovely place to have a stroll and soak up the atmosphere. It's a beautiful fortified area with different elements to see including a rather staggering graveyard! The oldest tower in Prague is also there. Apparently there were a couple of elements you can go into and look around but my Mom has bad feet so we tried... More

We went just as light was falling. There are views down over the river, and Vysehrad rock (legend about the first Princess of Prague) It's easy to get to on line C Metro. We have visited often, and it's good at all times of year, or day. Beautiful parkland, cafes, and the church which you should visit, is painted on... More

This part is slightly out of the way, but number 3 and 17 tram will take you there (there's a stop close to Charles Bridge). The cemetery in particular is amazing, and the higher ground in the park offered a great view over the city. Definitely worth going out of your way.

This is definitely one of the places i would go back for, as i did not have enough time to explore it. It is like a separate city in the city, with its own cathedral and cemetery and even a school. It was already dark when i went to visit the place and i had the pleasure to admire the... More

I used to live 5 minutes from Vyšehrad and it was a great place for a Sunday morning walk. My wife and I have minded dogs for a friend before and it is the perfect place to take them for a walk. There are lots of interesting paths to follow around a variety of different architectural styles and it is... More

The outside looks like an ancient Gothic cathedral, but inside is decorated with Art Deco paintings! Many famous artists and sports figures are buried in the small cemetary. Nice restaurants on the grounds - walk along the cliff wall to find them.

The Palace gets all the tourists, but Vysehrad, being off the beaten track, has great views and lots to do. A less frantic pace, with a wonderful national cemetery, church, etc.

Really nice place for small trip where is calm, peace and enough green space for families or bigger groups of friends or some home pets, nice view for whole Prague and beautiful cathedral inside with very old and nice cemetery. I recommend it.
