    Romantic spot in Prague, my favous

    by Xdrive Written May 21, 2005

    If you really want to find a romantic spot in Prague, well, my top chance is Vysehrad. Although it is a tourist spot, but actually, the tour will not come to here. Go to thte Slavin ( which is the place take I took this photo) , and go to look for the open space with Prague skyline, you sit down with your girlfriend/boyfriend for an hour without much tourist distribute you. This is one of my best spot in Prague.

    Graveyard beside the Vysehrad church

    by Xdrive Written May 21, 2005

    I am a big fan of sculptures, not matter big or small. Every sculpture has their own story. Here is another one I found in the graveyard. There are about 30-40 sculptures in the yard, take a walk there.

    Vysehrad

    by audtrikat Written Aug 12, 2004

    There's not much left of the original castle, but the imposing fortress walls and moat are amazing. This trip is well worth doing. You have to get the metro out to Vysehrad and then follow the signs (or your map) but it's worth the visit. There's great views of the river, lots of interesting little buildings, there's a gorgeous and ornate church there too (we saw a wedding party there and consequently, we didn't get to stay inside for very long). We got gorgeous weather and spent all afternoon there. There's a little church that's still being excevated called St Laurence's Church and if you go to the kiosk window, they give you the key and a little leaflet explaining what everything is. Then you go down into this musty, darkened site, through a door and it's amazing (but only if you're into archaeology...)

    Vysehrad

    by jexelot Written Feb 13, 2004

    On a rock over the river Vltava, this is the ancient seat of the Premyslide princes. The oldest building there is the rotunda of St. Martin. In the vicinity of St. Peter and Paul's Church is a residence for canons, casemates, a park, and a cemetery called Slavin containing tombs of famous representatives of Czech culture. From the south part of the fortifications one has a beautiful view of Prague.

    by Sioma Updated Dec 4, 2004

    Vishehrad is the second castle of Prague, situated south of the Hrad, on a hill that dominates Vltava river.
    It was built in X century, and at the beginning it was the residence of the king and his court....

    Vishehrad (2) : cathedral

    by Sioma Updated Dec 4, 2004

    ...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 )...
