This was a nice break from the bustle of the main tourist area. Take a short walk from the metro station. The signage makes it easy to find. There is nice shade in many areas and the views are great. You can explore at leisure for free, but there are modest fees to go in some of the buildings, such as the cathedral and art gallery. The cemetery is fascinating and not to be missed.

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.

This historic fort was built on a hill above the Vltava river in the 10th century as one of the first settlements in the area. A castle and church were built there and this was the seat for rulers until the seat of power was moved to Prague Castle in the 12th century. The area now has a park that goes throughout the facility. It is in a quiet residential area. There is no entry fee. The views around the outer walls provide great photos of the castle and city. There is a cemetery with large tombs containing some of the most famous Czech persons. On the East side of the cemetery you will find a large tomb with a large statue of Slavin on top built in the 19th century. This is the common tomb of selected personalities. Next to the cemetery is the neo-gothic Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul. Entry into the Basilica is free. This is a great place to visit to get away from the hectic tourist area and see great views of the city. It is only a 10 minute walk from the Vysehrad metro station.

Off the beaten track and about a 5/10 minute walk from the metro station, it is well worth the visit and time spent to walk around the grounds. It is an old castle alternative to the main castle and it is set on top of a hill, more of a fortress than a castle though. I was here in November and the views form the top over the river are good and I can imagine the place to be very busy in summer months with the weather being better then.
There are plenty places to sit and relax and it was very peaceful and relaxing

Beautiful attraction on the outskirts of Prague. Stunning views of the city from the external walkways and beautiful basilica which is highly decorated. This fort and it's buildings had all the charm of Prague city but with fewer crowds. It also had some beautiful little cafes to get a snack or a hot chocolate in and an art exhibition in the gallery. Worth a visit.

If you like to walk, travel along the river from Charles Bridge a few bridges to this park of magnificently manicured pathways and look back on Prague. Basilica of Peter and Paul is ruggedly simple with hard wood kneelers for the penitent. After lighting a candle, listen in the pews to recorded monks chant (at first I thought they were real) under brilliantly lit (even in November) stained glass windows - nominal entrance fee. Adjacent graveyard with sculpted and ornate tombs is alone worth the visit: all very peaceful.

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 :(

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.

The entire Vysehrad area is a beautiful site that i can not think why it is not more attracted to the tourists of Prague. Quiet, peaceful and fill of history. The castle, the Basilica of St.Peter and St.Paul, the National Cemetery, all had beauty beyond description. You can get to this area either by metro or just walking along the river south of central Prague. We started our day with touring Vysehrad then hike back into the center of Prague by the river stopping at the Dancing House and the church of the Heroes of the Heydrich Terror. Being it was a weekend, there were food, craft vendors along the river.
