This activity was a bit different than what I anticipated. I expected a castle, but this was more of a fortification with a wall walk. In great news - the views of the city were stunning and there was plenty of room to stretch your legs.

Great views from this historical monument. A very peaceful and quiet place from the busy tourist hustle. Stunning park, great views, incredible churches and monuments and a good walk. If you are in love with nature its a must visit. Loved this place. I wish i had taken out more time to stay there.

Take the #17 tram along the river, and walk up the hill into the real history of Prague. Great views. Small museums. Cafe with a view. Quiet. See the original statues from the Charles bridge. A wonderful park were the locals come. No crowds of tourists. This seems to be where they put all the cool stuff that doesn't quite... More

This area isn't as famous as the other ones in Prague, above all downtown. That's why it's worth the visit, if you don't mind walking a little bit to get there (bit far away).

Not really "touristic" place. For going there, use metro (station "Vyšehrad", line C) You can also visit cemetery "Slavín" where rests in peace many famous czech personages: actors, writers, singers, artists, e.g. Antonín Dvořák, Rafael Kubelík, Alfons Mucha, Jan Kaplický, Františedk Křižík, Jaroslev Heyrovský and many others.

Living history place on the opposite bank of the Vltava river, a Cathedral, graveyard with graves of many famous people (musicians, writers, poets), excellent view to the Vltava river. The place is much calmer than many other historical places in Prague (reachable from the underground station Vysehrad) so it offers great relax after more hassle times in the Old Town... More

A great autumn/winter walk is awaiting anyone who care to go here. I did the monument, the graveyard, and the cathedral. The Cathedral is serene and divine. One cannot not pray while in there. This is truly Bohemian! It is my favourite cathedrals of all in Prague, including St. Vitus!
