Pretty walk around the park. Great views and I bet it’s spectacular in summer. Easy to reach by public transport. Play park for kids. Few cafes but you have to pay to use toilets

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

A former fortress located on a hill, on the bank of the Vltava river. From its walls you have a wonderful view of the city. There are also some objectives to visit within the walls of the former fortress: first of all, the Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul, very beautiful, Vyšehrad Cemetery, where are burried many famous Czech citizens, such as Antonín Dvořák, Bedřich Smetana or Karel Čapek, Gorlice-an underground huge hall.
There are also several cafes and a small open-air amphitheater.

Vysehrad has a very rich history. The expansive views from the top of the hill are quite different than the view from the Castle. The beautiful view of the winding riverVltava and the bridges. The view of the Castle in the distance.

The Sts . Peter and Paul Basilica is worth visiting. The Cemetery on the side of the church is one of the most peaceful, tranquil places in Prague.

Visit to Vysehrad is usually recommended to visitors with more than 3days stay in Prague.
It is easy to combine the visit with a stop at the Dancing House, it is on the same route, if you choose to take the scenic walk by the river.

A bit out of the way from all the tourists and a good view from the side. Unfortunately we got stranded here as the tour bus didn't come back around for it's last sweep.

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 :(

In Vyšehrad there are statues of the Czech artist J.V. Myslbek, among them is a sculpture of "Zaboj and Slavoj". These two men were at the head of the Slavs in the fight against foreign enemies.
