Vysehrad, the former seat of Czech emperors used from the 10th century, is built on a steep hill from which it overlooks the Vltava River. Many famous Czech artists, writers and politicians are buried at Vyšehrad Cemetery and the cemetery itself is worth the visit for its historical atmosphere. The complex also features one of the oldest buildings in Prague, Rotunda of St Martin.
Nowadays, Vyšehrad is a public park popular among locals and tourists alike. Take a stroll there and admire the beautiful architecture of Church of St Peter and St Paul or just sit on the fortification and enjoy the splendid view.
The park is accessible 24/7.
