Enjoy the walking tour of the magnificant Vysehrad fortress with a 48hour hop on hop off voucher included
Our Vysehrad castle tour is our latest edition to our walking tours. Let our expert guides take you around the historic grounds of Vysehrad, which translates in English to ‘upper castle’. A fitting name as you can enjoy spectacular views from the south side of Prague across the beautiful Vltava river. But before enjoying those views there is quite a bit of fascinating history to discover with one of our expert guides.
Vysehrad is known for its myths. folklore and legends including one of the most crucial tales to the city of Prague and its foundation and future glory, that of Libuse. As well as this you will see the magnificent Basilica of St Peter and Paul, one of the most stunning places of worship in Prague and founded way back in the 11th century. Vysehrad 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 Vysehrad 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 our walking tour of Vysehrad which is absolutely one of the must-see places in Prague and indeed The Czech Republic.
You can access this tour by hopping off at stop 5 on the Purple Line route. The Tour will operate twice a day at 11:55 & 14:15 and will last 75 minutes approx.
Both our red and blue line routes have built in guided audio telling tales of the city as we whisk you around Prague's historical hot spots. We have seven languages available on the buses as well as a staff member on board to assist you with any questions or queries you may have.
The Purple line takes you to those places a little further from the centre such as Vysehrad castle, Vinohrady and Zizkov. These areas boast an array of wonderful historic sights such as the Church of St Ludmila at Namesti Miru or the Basilica of St Peter and St Paul at Vysehrad. As well as this you can hop off at the Zizkov TV tower and take in one of the most controversial looking structures in Prague. You can head up the tower or simply stroll around Prague's hippest district of Zizkov and find a cool cafe to soak in some of the city like a true local.
The voucher is valid on all buses and can be used throughout your selected period of time. The red line, with the option of open top, takes you to those hard to reach places in the city by foot such as The Castle, Strahov Stadium and Strahov monastery.
