It's a little way away from the main tourist section of Prague, but so absolutely worth it. Make sure you go, and give yourself some time to stroll around. This place is stunning. We went into the Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul, which...More

Vysehrad Castle is definitely worth the detour. The views from the castle are nice, but not as good as the view from Prague Castle, as the Old Town is very far from here. We enjoyed the Cathedral with beautiful mosaics above its doors (and particularly...More
