Unlike many places in Prague, this one still feels authentic. Very nice park, super-old cathedral and fortress, great view of Vltava river and center of Prague. You can get the idea on their web: http://www.praha-vysehrad.cz/lang/l2. Also a great beer garden (very modest / real stuff...More

So today I went to Vysehrad and it was a great way to spend the morning. It's not too large so to walk around it took me a couple of hours really but I did take my sweet time seeing every viewpoint and building the...More

A brilliant place to go to and the views of the city have to be experienced. It's cut away from the rest of the city - use the train to get here. It's 10 minutes from the Vysehrad train station and a very pleasant walk....More

Great place for a day out! lovely and peaceful. Great if you like 'historical' tours but also if you are into walks in the park. Can't miss it!

Of all the things we did in Prague, I liked this best. Quiet, peaceful, historic. The basilica and the cemetery are well worth a look, so is the exhibition of the historic fort. Great views of the Vltava up and downstream. Not heaving with tourists.

Though this is quite south of the other tourist sites, you can reach the gate via tram or by walking. The hike up the hill to the church and park are well worth the effort as you can see all up and down the Vltava...More

The church cost about 50Kr. to get in and you pay before entering. This isn't a castle so much as an old sort of fortified town I'd say...
