This is the place to relax. Take Metro to Vysehrad (on yellow line), walk across the square, and you'll get to Vysehrad. It is quiet place, you don't see many tourist there because it is not in the centre. There are beautiful views over Prague,...More

A perfect day in Prague has to start at the castle. No, not Prague Castle, the other one. Here you can enjoy an authenticity beyond the classic tourist experience. Vysehrad is where Prague was born, a brooding fortress perched high above the Vltava. It is...More

We didn't see this entire area as it was very big and the weather wasn't great that day. So much to take in! I don't see any need to take a tour of it, we explored nicely on our own. It was very inexpensive to...More

Visited here on our last morning in Prague as we were looking for places we hadn’t yet visited. It was a good alternative to the more popular castle and certainly less busy. We didn’t stay for long because of time restraints and poor weather but...More

Not so crowded. Definitely worth a visit. Look for the cannonball at the Rotonda. Church is nice. Just walk around the walls.

Wonderful place to stroll around, visit a nice church and snap pictures of the city from above the river. No crowds. Grab a coffee and relax.

This is apparently the original castle of the Prague city but not as much publicized and hence it is frequented primarily by locals rather than tourists. We saw people with food and drinks coming over here to enjoy the lazy day and spend their evenings....More

The former fortress of Vysehrad is now a large park for recreation and picnic. Other facilities found are a small underground gothic cellar museum, St Peter & Paul basilica with entry ticket 50kc, a small cemetery besides the basilica and the brickgate and gorlice. The...More

This complex can be reached fairly easily. It is two stops on the C line from Museum station, and then a signposted 15 minute walk. There is a lot to explore in this area and it is a lot quieter. I recommend the church with...More

This is Prague's original castle and has fantastic views over the city without anything like the crowds of the more well known castle. Great walks and popular with the locals. Large graveyard with Czech national heroes and notables. Lovely large church. But go for the...More

The walk from the metro stop is not particularly long, nor steep, although there is one flight of stairs. There is a lot of walking around the grounds, and it all depends on what you want to see. Visiting the church itself... More
