Vysehrad Castle has its origins in the 10th Century. It was built on high ground south of the city of Prague. Today Vysehrad is marked by the church of St Peter and Paul – seen in the picture above and below.
Getting there Vysehrad is easy to get to from central Prague. The best way to do it is to take metro line C (the red one) to Vysehrad. You then walk past a conference centre until you come to a very large brick wall. Pass through the large gates and into the Vysehrad area.
