Visiting Vysehrad Park, Prague

A hidden gem just around the corner from the hotel we were staying in, Vysherad Park is definitely worth an afternoon or evening visit. Surrounded by trees and flowers, looking onto the Vltava River below, it makes for quite the romantic walk.

Here you’ll find the remains of what was once a castle, previously deemed ‘castle on the heights’ due to Vysehrad Park being built on a hill. Not much remains of the castle today, but it still makes a great escape out of the hustle and bustle of the city centre. You’ll find few areas as quiet and peaceful as Vysherad Park, and it can be a great way to unwind and watch the sunset after a busy day exploring the sights Prague has to offer.

The landscaped gardens here make for a great place to have a picnic and people watch in the afternoons. Admire the views across the Vltava river from the remains of the castle walls, which looks out onto the Charles Bridge.

Best Things to do There & What to See

A prominent view seen from all around Vysherad Park is the spires of Saint Peter and Paul’s church. You’ll also find on the park, the burial ground of many great artists, scribes and politicians in the cemetery adjacent to the church. You can read about other churches in Prague – here.

Other attractions around the park include huge statues of Czech Mythology, some cafes and restaurants, and the Rotunda of Saint Martin. This dates back to the 11th century and is one of the original rotundas of the city that remains.

Vysehrad park can be enjoyed over a few hours, and can be enjoyed at all hours of the day. My personal favourite included grabbing something to eat in the evening, then taking a walk around the park watching the sunset over the castle walls.

    I went to Prague last year and it was, indeed, very cheap. I remember not even being able to go to bars in London or Paris because ONE DRINK was practically over my budget…in Prague, I drank happy. So glad you had an amazing time!

  • Yet again, WANDERLUST! Can't believe how cheap it was, great value for money.
