Vysehrad is the 6th town of Prague

Private tour in Prague

Tour Price : 70 EUR Duration : 2 hours Languages: russian, english

My third tour is Vysehrad.
Usually tourists don’t have time for this place. It is the 6th town of medieval Prague dates from 10th century. Vysehrad is peaceful, relaxing, with positive energy place. There are no shops or restaurants and even several people walk here. It is the best view of Prague from all sides. During walking on the high fortification walls with casemates inside, you will listen to my favourite legends.

You will see the perfect equestrian monument devoted to St. Wenceslas made with love and care by Jiri Bendl. St. Wenceslas is winemaker protector. Grapes are his attribute as well as his black eagle. Legendary woman Libuse once upon a time lived here and predicted the most striking future for Prague. She announced on the Vysehrad mountain, looking to the direction of the Prague castle: ”There, where son with father build up the threshold of the house, will be the town Praha and its glory will exalted to the sky. In front of it kings and emperors will kneeling and bow their heads in respect”.

Czech word ‘Prah”” means threshold. Exterior of Basilica St. Peter and Paul is pseudo Gothic style but interior is Art Nouveau and founder of this style was Czech painter Alphonse Mucha. Vysehrad cemetery is the final resting place for the Czech most well-known composers, artists, sculptors, writers, scientists.
