Somewhat overlooked, this ancient defensive fortress is a hot spot for romantic walks and impromptu picnics. It sits across the Vltava and a bit upstream from Prague Castle, which means walks along the ramparts offer excellent views over the river to Old Town and Malá Strana. The best time to go is late afternoon, when you can watch the sun set behind the castle. Music, literature, and history buffs should stop at the Vyšehrad cemetery. Among the Czech luminaries buried here are composers Bedřich Smetana and Antonín Dvořák, painters Max Švabinský and Alfons Mucha, and writers Karel Čapek and Jan Neruda. General entrance to the Vyšehrad grounds is free, with a modest fee to tour the casemates built into the castle walls and another to see the rotating exhibits at the tiny Vyšehrad art gallery.

Open daily 9:30 am to 5 pm November through March and 9:30 am to 6 pm April through October.
