Best time to visit is May or Summer. Local people go here for a walk, run or with children. I recommend to take public transportation there (bus station Tachovské náměstí) and then walk back down to city. The history of the hill is guarded by concrete megasculpture of Jan Zizka :). Trivia: Did you know the Prague's public transportation is... More

The place is a bit far to get to for what it offers. This sight can be skipped unless you have spare time in Prague. It is better to take the metro because the other option which is by tram will involve walking up a lot of stairs. I suggest to go by metro and then walk the stairs downwards... More

Nice place, nice gardens, great view of the city. For a change, museum had explanations in English. Nice for a free morning. We took a cab there, then walked back along the river.

We stayed at the Corinthia Towers Hotel and it was a short walk to Vysehrad. It is a lovely fort within a park setting. Also churches there with beautiful memorial stones. The view of Prague & Prague Castle was lovely.

We wanted to get away from the bustle of Central Prague so took the 17 tram down to Vysehrad. Our objective was to wander around somewhere pleasant, with nice views and some interesting spots. It certainly fulfilled those objectives. We paid a nominal fee to go into the Basilica of Peter and Paul (beautiful interior, every surface is painted or... More

This place Vysehrad was one of the best places we went in the city. It has the best views and peace of mind away from the main crowded places. Best place to relax

Take the tram or stroll along the river bank a mile or so from the Charles V Bridge to Vysehrad. The old fortifications sit on a rocky outcrop above the river. Walk along the walls to get great views across the river, city and suburbs, enjoy some of the colourful tiled roofs and pastel buildings. Pop into the splendid basilica... More

Someone recommended to me to go see Vysehrad instead of the more touristy Prague Castle ..... well, I don't agree. Prague castle is worth seeing as it is a true gem of the city. Not to say that Vysehrad is disappointing. It is mythical, quite mesmerizing in its own right, plenty of things to see and experience and affords great... More

Thre is a lot to do at the Vysehrad, as this is a fort and a park at the same time, offering beautiful views of the river and the town, a cathedral, underground walks and lots more. Some of the very oldest structure in Prague are located here.

Lovely walks around the grounds, with views down to the river and across the city. Very quiet, occasional school parties, nice place for a picnic too
