Vysehrad literally translated stands for “Castle on the heights” and it is exactly that- a beautiful castle on heights. It is accessible throughout the year and you can visit it at any hour at your own convenience. The adjoining park covers the entire area and offers you the best walk to explore the place completely. Make sure to take a walk through the Tabor Gate as here, the ruins of a former fortification of a place built by Charles IV are still present. You can see how beautiful the place must be just by seeing its ruins.
There is a lot of competition for the most striking feature of the park, but the point from where you can see the entire Prague easily wins. Remember to stand at the Gothic ruins of Libuses’s Baths just to get the complete feeling of the place. You are sure to have a lot of people to walk with you at any time of the night and evening, as it is the most preferred time to explore and enjoy this place.

Probably not the most mainstream place to visit if you travel to Prague, but one of my most favorite places. A fort turned park, this park is build on a historical fort which is elevated from the ground giving a 360 degree view of the suburb area of Prague overlooking the river too. Perfect place for morning and evening strolls, picnics, walking your pets, and spending quality time with loved ones. Also at the park you will find gems like a small cathedral with a cemetery with interesting gravestones.
Excellent view and landmark ,One of the best places in Prague. Definitely the must go and must see. Enjoy your time here and do not be afraid to make a picnic here. The view on night Prague is simply amazing.
just 3 km southeast of Prague Castle, on the right bank of the Vltava River. Quiet, ancient, high above you can see the city scene. beautiful statues. the paintings inside the beautiful church. And they ask that you do not open the flash when taking pictures inside the church.
Not really a castle anymore, more of a brick walled park with breathtaking views of the city and river. Plenty to see and do in the area. I recommend the tunnel tour where you go in and see some statues. Bring a camera. and enjoy your vacation.
Great for escaping from the crowd. Very calm and nice place, you can have a very relaxing walk while having some nice views to the city. There is a beautiful cathedral and some cafes, museums too.
