Prague Travel Guide

Vy?ehrad

Vy?ehrad

Vyaehrad, a hill fort perched on a rock above the river, is an integral part of the Prague skyline. The twin spires of the Neo-Gothic Saints Peter and Paul Church are visible from afar and the façade has beautiful carvings. No other site in the city has as much distinction attached to it. Behind the church is the Slavin Cemetery where many distinguished Czech artists, scientists and academics are buried. From the battlements the view of the Vltava valley is superb, and many tourists in Prague come to Vyaehrad simply to take pictures of the impressive vista.
