Neighbourhood
“Looking like something out of a fairy tale, the Vyšehrad fortress—literally translated as the "Upper Castle," or the "Castle on the Heights"—stands high above the Vltava River overlooking Prague. Known to have been in existence as far back as the 10th century, it has long been the subject of myth and legend, including the foretelling of an ancient princess of the rising of a great city around it. Once the royal residence of Vratislav II, Vyšehrad also played a role as part of the original Royal Route taken by kings about to be crowned, who would have to stop here to pay tribute to their predecessors (the route led from Vyšehrad to Hradcany). Although now largely ruins, the fortress is a wonderful place for a stroll or picnic and offers superb views of the surrounding city. During the summer months, the attraction's open air theater hosts musical and theatrical performances. English language guided tours can be arranged. Address: V pevnosti 159/5b, 128 00 Praha 2”

“Riegrovy sady is a pleasant park stretching between the Italská, Chopinova, Polská, and Vozová streets on the northern edge of Vinohrady, at the border with Žižkov. It is close to walk to from Vinohradská and Slavíkova streets and from the Jiřího z Poděbrad Square.

Garden

It also works as a shortcut between spots that are otherwise quite far apart. It can be entered through the Světozor passage or through Jungmannovo náměstí. If you struggle to find the entrance, ask the locals!”
