Vysehrad Castle - Review

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.

Vysehrad Castle, Prague Reviews

  • A gem in Prague. South of the main old town area(east side of the river), it is easily accessible by tram #17 then a short walk up a quaint winding street. You walk past a couple restaurants. You first approach the castle walls and immediately feel like you are removed from the hustle and bustle of Prague. My friend who grew up in Prague said it’s his favorite tourist attraction in the whole city. Don’t miss a quiet stroll through the graveyard and the many unique vistas overlooking the river and the city.

  • Not a well known place among tourists but definitely among locals. Vysehrad is among the two main fortress or castles in Prague. It's beautiful, you get great views of the city, it's not usually as crowded as Prague Castle just ideal to go for a run, hang out, make a picnic, etc. Worth it if you have time, but if you don't don't try too hard to fit it into your itinerary because it's kind of far from the city center (for Prague distances). The golden hour it's just beautiful, one of my favorite spots in the beautiful Prague.

  • This place overlooks the city and not as crowded as the Prague castle. To get into the church it only cost two euros and definitely not a bad deal. We went during the weekend and they had a fair in their courtyard. We were treated to a show and some great food. Also, everyone was dressed in vintage soldier outfits and showcase some cool weapons back in the day.

  • Amazing views, particularly during sunset. Would recommend bringing a picnic and eating on the walls or benches. Multiple great places to take photos, lots of locals. Large space to stroll and explore. The Basilica within looks pretty good from the outside. There's a Metro station (Vysehrad Station) on line C, but the station isn't very close.

  • Amazing place, easily you can spend two hours walking around. It has some amazing views. There is a lot of locals so if you have questions or want some recommendation, you will get those there. Many people bring blankets and just chill there. It's very peacefull, but at the same time have the special vibe. We walked from there to Dancing house for about half an hour, as well very nice walk.
