    4 stars: not worth it if limited time!
    This is a nice park. The cemetery is genuinely very beautiful. However, is it worth going here on a limited itinerary? Probably not. I would only come here if you had at least more than three days to spend in Prague (I, luckily, had six). There is the Peter and Paul Basilica, which is also quite nice, but going inside costs money. I would still recommend walking along the castle walls; it is really pretty.

    Lovely walk! Great views of Prague
    A lovely park with a great view over Prague from the wall. Not crowded at all and away from all the crowds. Didn't pay to go into it but appreciated all the exterior. Looked amazing in the autumn colours. We definitely recommend if visiting prauge for a few days.

    Lovely
    This history of this old ancient castle and fortress goes back 1000 years. Most of it is gone, what remains are some fortress walls, a few structures, a couple churches(one huge one) and a very grand cemetery with a lot of dead important people who got some very nice headstones to immortalize them. Vysehrad is now a very large green park which makes for excellent strolling along the fortress walls where you'll get some great views of Prague all around. Its free to wander the park and cemetery, but does cost a reasonable 130CZK/$5.90 to enter the St. Peter & Paul Basilica, where you'll see a more modern contemporary interior with artworks and stain glass windows by Alphonso Mucha.

    Sunny Sunday in February
    Lovely peaceful park set within the castle walls… lots of people wandering around making the most of the weather. A small coffee shop and a cemetery thats got generations of families buried and beautiful memorials. The Basilica is very impressive and beautiful inside . I think it about 60 ck to go inside.

    Vysehrad Park & church are well worth a visit.
    Easily reached by public transport. We spent almost a whole day here; amazing views of Prague and the river from the fortress walls, and beautiful walk through the large green park. There is a large place to eat, which was busy, but still plenty of room; but we did not try eating there.

I travelled to Vysehrad via the metro and found the short walk to the park very easy. The park itself was quite large and there was plenty to see while wandering through. There are several vantage points for photographs from various angles. I enjoyed walking through the grounds, along the border walls and visiting the cathedral. The cathedral did require a small entrance fee which I was more than happy to pay. All in all, it was a beautiful way to spend the day and far less crowded than most other places i visited in Prague.

Vysehrad is one of the most impressive sites in Prague. I spent 6 days in Prague. On my last day, I visited Vysehrad. The site is south of the city center. You can get here by walking through the river promenade. The walk is long but rewarding; in your way to Vysehrad you may visit the National Theater, the Dancing House, and the Cathedral of Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius. Vysehrad is where the Premyslid princes used to live (First royal dynasty).

To see the site, you have to cross the river and climb the road to the main entrance. Entrance is free. This is a classical off-the beaten path site; there are no tours, there are no buses, there are no crowds. The place is mainly visited by locals. The site is impressive! You can appreciate the huge walls, the Cathedral of Saint Paul and Saint Peter which is marvelous!, the rotunda of Saint Martin, the magnificent views of the river which are perhaps, the best views of the river in Prague, the cemetery, the cubist houses, the park, and the monumental sculptures. The only place that requires a ticket is the cathedral but the price is low.

there are many benches where you can see to contemplate the sunset. It is ideal to visit Vysehrad in a clear day as the views are phenomenal. It is so rewarding that you do not feel tired.

A park inside an old citadel. As a park, it's not out of the ordinary. Just a lot of old trees and that's it. But the view of Prague from the walls of the citadel is exceptional. There is also a small cafe where you can have a snack or a drink.

It is said that the story of Prague started here. Its an old fortification, which is turned into a park now. Not many tourists visit here but its a great place to enjoy Prague.

We took a metro (C Line) to Vysehrad from Florenc station. If you are coming from Florenc side, the side you get down from the metro is the side of the park. You get out of the station, walk for 7-10 minutes and you are at the entrance of the park. There is no uphill walk and the walk is very flat. I have read that coming by tram, one needs to walk uphill, so i would recommend taking a metro.

Once at the entrance, there are couple of old gates, which one needs to cross and then the park starts. At the very beginning is the rotunda of st martin, which is considered the oldest available structure in Prague. From here, you can either take right or left. Since the park/premises is almost circular, you will eventually come out from the other direction. We took the right way and continued our nice stroll. The park also has a beautiful church and a cemetery. Be respectful while visiting the cemetery. The cemetery is quite well looked after and a complete contrast to the jewish cemetery in old town. The church was also beautiful. We went on 24th December 2022, hence obviously everything was well decorated. But even at other times, its a must visit place. From various points of the park, one would get nice views of different parts of Prague including vltava river flowing across the town. Spare good couple of hours for this park excluding the travelling time of another 1 hr (going and coming back) from old town. I would say its an often neglected place amongst the tourists. But i could see for locals, its a favourite. For a relaxing stroll, this place is ideal. Also it gives you a great phot opportunity of the prague city and visit to couple of famous monuments.

Also the park is entirety free along with the church, cemetery. You can however give voluntary donation at the church.

I got the suggestion from the honest guide, a guide made from a couple of Czech guys who love their country. We got a bit lost to get there, my fault entirely but it was beautiful the view from the city the sculptures. One of the of the couple from the characters of the Czech opera Libuse, but the best part of the whole thing the church is one of the most beautiful ones that I have seen. Enjoy it if you have time will be worthy

We visited the Vysehrad castle and the best part of this site was a park, quiet and beautiful . No crowds are there. Park is very clean, nice and comfortable for walkers. It was a pleasure to spend long time there to work through its alleys, covered by crowns of old trees. There also beautiful view on Prague and Vltava river.

NO visit to Prague would ever be complete without a walk through this area. Take the metro from town (C-line) to Vysehrad and walk all the way through the gardens, explore the church, see the art, enjoy the natural environment, the landscaped gardens. Head down the stairs and you will be along the river in the center of Prague again!

I've never saw here a lot of people or mabey it's because of big territory, what i want to say it's always so quiet here. Like to come, like to walk around, not even walk inside of gallery or Bazilik itself.
And it is such a great views here. Only Petrzin and Prague Castle have better i think, but here is without tourist's crowds.
And this place especially beautiful when it's dark. You can feel kind of magic appear.
Should stay long enough to hear bell's ring.
