Prague: 2.5-Hour Vyšehrad Castle with Gorlice & Tickets

1. Prague: 2.5-Hour Vyšehrad Castle with Gorlice & Tickets

Vyšehrad is situated on a rocky promontory above the Vltava River and offers sweeping views of the city. The castle was used as an important royal residence before it was devastated during the Hussite Wars at the end of the Middle Ages and then later, converted into the Baroque fortress known today.  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, 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 now 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, 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, which are home to some of the original Baroque statues from Charles Bridge.

We had a super great tour with a committed guide David, who took a lot of time for us and was able to answer all of our questions because he was very competent. He spoke excellent German, was easy to understand and gave us a lot of information.

Great views. Nice church and cemetery. Interesting story.
