Very nice parkland, monument church and grounds to explore. We walked from Prague 1 to the fortress and thoroughly enjoyed the stroll, stopping for a drink and a walk back. Really nice relaxed few hours.

I am both amazed, and quite happy, that Vysehrad is a little known gem of a place to visit. Prague castle gets the attention and tourists, but Vysehrad is where it’s at. Beautiful gardens and streets to stroll through, cute cafes, and incredible cultural landmarks...More
