This fortress was established in the mid-10th Century and was the oldest seat of the Czech nobility. Charles IV built a system of walls linking Vysehrad with Nove Mesto but over the years, most of these were gradually destroyed. Upon arriving at Vyšehrad, visitors can stroll around the ramparts enjoying excellent views of the Vltava River. Visit the Gothic Church of St Peter and Paul, the Romanesque Rotunda, the underground casemates, the small museum, and the Vyšehrad Cemetery , where both Smetana and Dvorak are buried. Admission prices vary depending on which part of the property you would like to see.
