A little out of the way of all the other major attractions in Prague, but that makes this place quiet. South of the Charles Bridge, just follow the main road down and you will find it in front of you. Old cathedral with a cemetery in its shadow. Great view of the city from the top, well worth a visit.

Vysehrad might be my favorite place in Prague. The grounds and cemetery are incredibly peaceful and contain the resting places of some of the most famous Czechs. While it is a bit off the main path, it is a must see.

This is a beautiful, quite place to spend some time. Out of the hustle and bustle of busy Prague, it is well worth your time to explore the grounds, the cemetery and the wonderful view of the city. Well worth the time, if you can find it!

This is Prague's "other" castle. While it doesn't have the concentration of historic and cultural sights, it also is not chockablock with visitors. You take a walk all the way around the battlements and never see a tour group's "lollipop." In addition to the battlements, it has two churches, a sculpture garden, an historic cemetery, an art gallery, beer gardens,... More

A small town by itself surrounded by building from the city. Is a nice hideaway from heavily infested tourist place. I love the serenity of this place. You can access this place via Vysehrad station metro (red line). Once you are there, walk towards the Asian restaurant side.

If you are in town you should invest some time to get out of the center and reach (easy to get by tram or subway) this amazing place on the top of a hill with gorgeous gothic church and absolutely stunning panoramic views of Prague.

Beautiful views of the river! Unlike most of the tourist site, it wasn't overcrowded, which was fun.

This is the most incredible cemetery we have ever seen. Writers, artists, musicians, scientists - people who have left their mark on history. Every tombstone is completely unique and most are absolutely beautiful and personal.

Nice place to bring a visit. Especially nice to have a great view on Prague, without being surrounded by people everywhere.
