...nowadays, very few remain of the ancient buildings:
Vishehrad appair like an esplanade, surrounded by big walls; the most valuable things remained are the S.Peter and Paul's cathedral (XI century...but the bell towers were built at the beginning of 1900), the cemetery (where you'll find the tobs of some important people, like the composers Smetana and Dvorak, and the writer Jan Neruda )...
Aside from visiting the church, spend time in the gardens. I did lay down on the bench near the the church and listened to the ringing of the bells. And later, I went to the gardens at the back of the church and took a nap. It was very nice. Birds singing, fresh air, green grass and lots of trees that provide shades. It was heavenly!
While up there, you won't really think of going down to look for a restaurant to have a fine meal. I am glad that I thought of just going to one of the few stalls in there. When one is tired and one gets to have a beer and sausage for almost nothing (was cheap, I thought) and gets to enjoy them while in the middle of the gardens, one can say that the day is just fantastic!
This is a nice place, mostly known with its gardens and views. It has been a castle, now there are churches, summer theater and gardens.
u can do a very pleasant promenade in the evening,before it's darken.
its a park with a lot of monuments,an old cemetery,and some restaurants and bars.
Located just a few miles outside of the city center. Spend a relaxing afternoon explorering the area.
Here on this place has began a history of Prague and Czech republic since year 900 ! Church Vysehrad with very nice view at Prague and the river Vltava.
Very calm and beautiful park with wonderful cathedrals.
Cemetery where there are tombs of many famous people: Smetana, Dvorzhak etc.
Inside Vysehrad there is a garden with a few large monuemnts which look quite nice if you fancy a break from the breathtaking views.
This is the church Vysehrad. The church is ok, but the graveyard beside the church is very interesting place to visit. Please read my other tips. :-)

...Vishehrad is a very nice place, romantic and with a particular atmosphere.
You can't miss to walk around the bastions and in the parks, enjoying great views of the city and the river...
This is a pic of the Vysehrad hill with the church of St. Peter and Paul, seen from the Charles Bridge.
Haha, I waited for a red tram coming out of the short tunnel at Vysehrad, unfortunately it was blue. Too bad! :)
The "official" cemetery of Prague. It is a very beautiful and peaceful place to calm down after all the tourist traps near Charles Bridge...
