Create an itinerary including Vyšehrad National Cultural Monument
A symbol of Czech statehood, Vyšehrad National Cultural Monument sits on a high promontory overlooking the Vltava River. This "Castle on the Heights," as its name roughly translates, notably contains a neo-Gothic church and an 11th-century rotunda, the oldest one in Prague. The extensive complex of structures also includes a 19th-century cemetery that's the final resting place for many Czech luminaries, including Alfons Mucha, Bedrich Smetana, and Antonin Dvorak. Many of the cemetery's headstones represent examples of outstanding artistic achievement; Dvorak's tombstone counts among the finest works of sculptor Ladislav Saloun, also interred here.

  • Lovely little spot for a relaxing wander and taking in the views. Had a little glass of wine in one of the bars, plenty to see and beautiful on a nice day!

  • This historic fort was built on a hill above the Vltava river in the 10th century as one of the first settlements in the area. A castle and church were built there and this was the seat for rulers...

  • Good views, not worth paying though
  • Gorgeous views of Prague from this beautiful complex. When here, check out the Basilica of Sts Peter and Paul. The reliquaries are fascinating. Also the cemetery has gorgeous sculptures in the family plots. You can also check out the ruins of a 10th century chapel and the castle's old bunkers. If you have little ones with you, there is a fabulous playground at the northeast side of the castle complex.
