I decided to visit Vysehrad based on multiple points: less crowding, minimal lines, minimal tourists, unobstructed views of the city and more exposure to local cuisine. All of these things were not only met but superceded expectations. I had the place mostly to myself. I...More

Unlike the crowded main castle in Prague, this is much more peaceful. Not quite a ‘castle’ it’s actually a congregation of lovely buildings now, but makes for a pleasant walk around the grounds. The gothic church in the centre is the highlight. The gardens full...More

If you're staying within a few kilometres, make the trek to visit Vysehrad, instead of shoving through crowds near Prague Castle, waiting in a line, then paying 11 euros. It's a free option with several points of interest dotted around, such as a cathedral.

Easy to get to on the tram, a short walk uphill - and it's so quiet! Very few tourists up here despite the history, the area and the views. Lovely walks and the cemetery is a must visit - Dvorak, Smetana and Suk all are...More

Gorgeous views of Prague from this beautiful complex. When here, check out the Basilica of Sts Peter and Paul. The reliquaries are fascinating. Also the cemetery has gorgeous sculptures in the family plots. You can also check out the ruins of a 10th century chapel...More

Take a tram. Stop is not exactly by the cathedral, doesn't really matter which one you get off at on either side. Cemetary is very interesting. Cathedral a little dull, but worth a quick lok inside. Grounds very nice.
