Vyšehrad Prague Reviews
Great place, if you want to avoid crowds - full of history and architecture May 20, 2013
Vyšehrad is a place in Prague, where you can discover history and architecture. As this place in not located directly in the city centre (however with a good connection), it is possible to avoid crowds of the other Prague sights. There's 2 main ways to the place. First one from the underground station of line C 'Vyšehrad' and walk about 10 min. from the Congress Centre building - it is interesting, that the station is open so you can see to Nusle valley from there and the line goes through the Nusle bridge (inside the bridge actually). The second is a walk from the place called 'Výtoň', where you can get by a tram and go up on the hill from a river Vltava embankment.
The area is full of interesting places. If you go from the underground station C side, you pass 3 gates already. From many of the places I would recommend to stop at 4 statues from the Slavic mythology created by a Czech sculptor Josef Václav Myslbek.
This place is located on a hill, so the views towards the Prague Castle and Vltava river are breathtaking.
If you are in Prague, this place shouldn't be missed, and I still think, that it is a bit quieter one, than those in the city centre, so you can avoid the crowds of the main sights.
