We had researched places to visit in Prague away from the tourist mob. This attraction is worth a visit. There are numerous interesting attractions on the grounds. There is no admission fee. The location is on the bluff of the river so you can have a good view of the city and river.

Vysehrad and its ground were worth the 30 minute walk! The grounds are quiet and beautiful and offer fabulous views of Prague.

We spent several hours walking around the grounds of Vysehrad, away from all of the crowds of tourists elsewhere in Prague. Although there were a few tour groups, the area is so large that we mainly just saw locals walking their dogs or strolling with children. There are multiple points of interest from various periods in Prague's history and beautiful... More

If you want to get another view of Prague but much less touristy, here is the place. The place is so tranquil and scenic. Stop at the Beer Garden to enjoy the scenery of whole Prague accompanied with very reasonable beer and food. Recommended if you have extra days in Prague.

We climb up the stairs to visit the place. It was a long, hard climb , up a long flight of steps. Was disappointed with the place, not grand , nor unique. Just normal. The most impressive is the Bascillica Minor, dedicated to St Paul and St. Peter but you have to pay to visit the inside. Many came to... More

This was a cool and relaxing stroll with some awesome views of the city and river. The Basilica had a small fee (I think around $2)

Vysehrad is a nice place, an old fortress with a cathedral, an old building from the 11th century (unique in Prague!) and a cemetary where you can find the tombs of Dvorak and Smetana and other important Czech cultural figures, When you want to spend some time away from all the tourist groups in the city center, I recommand this...

We did this on our last day and it was an absolutely lovely way to end our trip! If you want to get away from the crowds (and other places can get quite crowded) this is the way to do it. Far less travelled and full of locals. The basilica is stunning with lots of wall paintings and the park... More

There are beutiful views of Prague from the top of the monument. There is also a beutiful cathedral that you can go into. We got there as they were closing so we couldn't go in, but peeking through the windows, it looked amazing. Kind of off the beaten path, so it is not nearly as crowded as some other sites.... More

Tranquil environment, a fortress. The view was good just unfortunate that I went on a drizzling evening. It offered an overview of the city including the river but it was too far away the castle district for a nice night view
