Vysehrad National Cultural Monument
Top 36 of 162 things to do in Prague
The castle on the Vyšehrad hill, originally called Chrasten, was established during the 10th century, definitely later than Prague Castle.
Situated within the fort is the Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul, as well as the Vyšehrad Cemetery, containing the remains of many famous people from Czech history. It also contains Prague's oldest Rotunda of St. Martin from the 11th century.
Local legend holds that Vyšehrad was the location of the first settlement which later became Prague, though thus far this claim remains unsubstantiated.
