This is one of my favorite places in Prague. Less touristy and quite for just a stroll, view of the city or relaxing in the park. In the summer time, there is usually live music on the weekend and the walk back to the city...More

My overall impression is that the historic, 10th-century, fort buildings, structures, garden, and park are nice, and it offers good views of the Vltava River and parts of Prague. I liked the Neo-Gothic style architecture of the Basilica of St. Peter and Paul. The cemetery...More

Walk by the river and step up the hill. Nice place, nice view, far better from the main Castle. Visit the beautiful cemetary, you'll find Dvorak and Smetana graves, have a cofee at the little cafeteria.

I went 3 times in 4 days because hotel was close and it was awesome and unique. Can take 30mins to hour. I took longer. Dvorak is there. Each tombstone is an art masterpiece. A little uphill 3 minutes. Easy to find.
