Vyšehrad – V Pevnosti 159/5b, Prague 2, www.praha-vysehrad.cz According to ancient legends, Vyšehrad is the oldest seat of Bohemian princes, but in fact, the local settlement was established later than Prague Castle – about the mid-10th century. Situated on a rocky promontory above the Vltava River, it offers unique views of the city, and the park area is home to hidden architectural treasures including the rare Romanesque rotunda of St. Martin from the 11th century,

the neo-Gothic Church of Sts. Peter and Paul, built on medieval foundations; the national cemetery, where Antonín Dvořák and other notable personalities were laid to rest; and underground casemates housing the originals of some Baroque statues from the Charles Bridge. The grounds of Vyšehrad are open throughout the day.

Opening times of buildings: daily 9:30–18:00 (April to October) and daily 9:30–17:00 (November to March)
