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.

A beautiful visit just outside of the major tourist areas with spectacular views and a fascinating history and cemetery where some of the great heroes of the Czech Republic are buried.

The problem with Prague Castle and surrounds is that there are far too many tourists. Like many popular tourist places around the world, the sheer numbers of people ruin the place. So escape the hordes and head for Vysehrad: take your guide book with you...More

Quite a bit of history to see here, with nice views over the river and the rest of Prague. We also went into the "cellar", which wasn't worth it. The church and the rest of the area is looking really nice. Prepare for a good...More
