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!

At about 2.5 miles from the old town, this is walkable but a bit of a hike. Fortunately public transportation (which we did not use) is easy and fast. The views of the city and the river from the hilltop fort offer a unique vantage point. This is a quiet area with few tourists.

This beautiful place is only a couple of stops on the metro from the old town. It is so quiet in comparison. There is a beautiful park and an amazing Medieval cathedral that was re painted around 1900 by several artists influenced by Alfons Mucha. It is the most beautiful cathedral I have ever been to. There is the National... More

I'm not sure why this place has so many great reviews, but I seem to have had a different experience. First of all, the signage is terrible. Our GPS took us to the bottom of a large hill and said we were there. From that point we wandered around for over 30 minutes before we found the the Gothic Cellar.... More

We spent a morning time there with family. Peaceful place after more touristic sights, lovely park, wonderful playground for kids, and nice views. A little long walk from subway, but well worth it. Cafes and restaurants were ok.
