Beautiful views
Oct 2019
Vysehrad has a very rich history. The expansive views from the top of the hill are quite different than the view from the Castle. The beautiful view of the winding riverVltava and the bridges. The view of the Castle in the distance.

The Sts . Peter and Paul Basilica is worth visiting. The Cemetery on the side of the church is one of the most peaceful, tranquil places in Prague.

Visit to Vysehrad is usually recommended to visitors with more than 3days stay in Prague.
It is easy to combine the visit with a stop at the Dancing House, it is on the same route, if you choose to take the scenic walk by the river.

Looks pretty

A bit out of the way from all the tourists and a good view from the side. Unfortunately we got stranded here as the tour bus didn't come back around for it's last sweep.

I have visited only the surroundings of the castle. The entry was 250 czk as far as i remember. There is a terrace near the castle but you only can pay with cash ( czk and euro). Also for the toilet is not provided a card payment :(

Zaboj and Slavoj
Jun 2019
In Vyšehrad there are statues of the Czech artist J.V. Myslbek, among them is a sculpture of "Zaboj and Slavoj". These two men were at the head of the Slavs in the fight against foreign enemies.

Peaceful park
Mar 2020 • Solo
My go to park in Prague. Great views along the river. Downside is that there is a steep climb, from whichever side you approach. I haven't been in the chuch, but have walked arond the graveyard. There are some fabulous sculptures, a museum, art gallery and cafes in the park itself. I always find it peaceful, even when it's busy.

Sunday morning trip for views.

Myself and my 19 year old son were in Prague for the last weekend before total isolation lock down. 12th to 15th March 2020. Museums, libraries, galleries, restaurants all closed, but this area was open and easy to reach. We jumped on the metro red line and went down to Vysehrad stop, then it was an easy ten minutes walk west following the signs. It is a large walled area with many buildings, but also grass areas and benches where locals stopped for a picnic. It had different views back along the river towards the new castle and the spires all over Prague. There was a small cafe open with outside tables, and the beer was larger and cheaper than coke!!!!
We walked around the whole site, taking photos in every direction, easy walk, few steps, but you are with locals, very few other tourists at all. After 90 minutes we walked back to the metro and came back to the centre of Prague. Ticket machines at all stations were in English and took credit cards.

Quieter part of Prague
Mar 2020
Visited here to see some green space and quiet reprieve from town centre. Easy to find and just 10 mins on the tram from centre. Lovely medieval church and Jewish cemetery to visit plus walk around the ramparts with great views of the river from above. Good cafe for snacks or lunch.
