What to expect

Discover this beautiful, but lesser known castle, in Prague and avoid the crowded tourist sights! The original medieval residence, set on a rock above the Vltava River, was later converted into a Baroque fortress surrounding a peaceful park that offers spectacular views of the city.

Meet your guide in the center of Prague right in front of the entrance to the National Museum at the top of Wenceslas Square. Following a short metro ride, you will be awe-struck by the enchanting view of Prague as you make your way to the Fort.

Enter the gates of the baroque fortress and walk through the spacious park area which holds hidden treasures including the Romanesque Chapel of St. Martin from the late 11th century. Then visit the Collegiate Church of Saints Peter and Paul (attached to Vyšehrad’s Royal Collegiate Chapter) which was radically rebuilt in neo-Gothic style in the late 19th century and is decorated with Art Nouveau frescoes.

Continue walking through the adjoining cemetery where you can see the graves of some of the most notable Czech artists such as Antonín Dvořák and Bedřich Smetana, Alfons Mucha, and Karel Čapek. Slow down and find out who they were and what was special about their lives. Take your time enjoying the stunning views of the city and if you still want to see more, enter the underground casemates inside Vyšehrad’s fortification walls housing some of the original Baroque statues from Charles Bridge!
