A symbol of Czech statehood, Vyšehrad National Cultural Monument sits on a high promontory overlooking the Vltava River. This "Castle on the Heights," as its name roughly translates, notably contains a neo-Gothic church and an 11th-century rotunda, the oldest one in Prague. The extensive complex of structures also includes a 19th-century cemetery that's the final resting place for many Czech luminaries, including Alfons Mucha, Bedrich Smetana, and Antonin Dvorak. Many of the cemetery's headstones represent examples of outstanding artistic achievement; Dvorak's tombstone counts among the finest works of sculptor Ladislav Saloun, also interred here.

One of the best places to enjoy Prague's beautiful sunset. The place offers a stunning view over Prague and its bridges. A great benefit is also that there are rarely tourists and so it's quite calm and relaxable.
Great place to enjoy the beautiful view of the Vltava and Prague.
Loved the views from this place.If you are nearby during sunset then you have to visit this place for sure. The walk is slightly long but worth it.
Amazing...a great walk especially if you get in early...
