Vyšehrad

With a tram or metro we will come to Vysehrad, the second oldest stronghold after Prague Castle. Its origins go back to the 10th century. In the 11th century Vyšehrad was a seat of the first Czech king Vratislav, who abandoned Prague Castle and moved his court to Vysehrad.The gothic fortress was rebuilt in the 17th century in Baroque style. In the 19th century the National cemetery with Slavin (national tomb) was founded here, the resting place of the leading personalities of the Czech nation. We will enter Vysehrad through the Tabor gate, then continue through the Leopold gate, here we will see the Romanesque rotunda of St. Martin. The dominant of Vysehrad is the Church of Saint Peter and Paul, of neogothic architecture with Art-Nouveau decorations in the interior. Nearby we can see the remains of the 10th century Church of Saint Lawrence as well as the remnants of the princely and royal palace. We will walk across the Myslbek meadow with the four statues of old Czech legendary heroes, then visit the National cemetery where also Czech composers Dvorak and Smetana are buried among other Czech personalities. We will enjoy a breathtaking view of Prague from the ramparts and go in the casemates built in the fortification walls where the six original Baroque statues from the Charles Bridge are kept.
