Vysherad is worth visiting because it has great historical buildings and monuments. Much less crowded than Prague Castle and the architecture and views from the castle are comparable. I enjoyed going through all the grounds and seeing everything. It is not far from Central Prague...More

Vysehrad offers an excellent window into history of Prague. Also, the views of Prague are amazing. It is walking distance from the center and it felt very peaceful. It also host a Slavin cementary, a resting place of some very famous Czech people.

There was no entry fee. There is not s castle there. It is an area with a crmetary that has many famous Czechs buried there. There is a church that charges a small fee to enter. We found it interesting, peaceful and relaxing.
