Your guide will show you around the historic grounds of Vyšehrad, (in English ‘upper castle’). The mystical grounds of the castle ooze echoes of the past, its folklore, legends and myths have been passed from generation to generation: including one of the most important tales to the city of Prague and its foundation and future glory, that of Libuše. 

You will see the magnificent Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul, one of the most stunning places of worship in Prague founded way back in the 11th century. Vyšehrad cemetery is beautiful and legendary as it lays rest to some of the most imperative residents and cultural icons of the Czech Republic. One of the oldest buildings in Prague can be found in the fortress of Vyšehrad and that is the Rotunda of St. Martin. This old but sturdy building has stood the test of time and even still has a cannonball lodged in the side of it from the Prussian raids in 1757. All this and more will be covered in this walking tour of Vyšehrad which is absolutely one of the must-see places in Prague and indeed the Czech Republic.
