THE VYŠEHRAD CASTLE AND CUBISM

3 hours walking tour - this private tour leads to the mythical Vyšehrad castle and river bank of the New Town

 

The Vyšehrad castle was for a short while the residence of the Czech kings. Afterwards during the 17th century a big baroque fort was built there and it's still visible from the whole city. Now it's a quiet place with parks and beautiful views. Houses built in the Cubism style are situated just beneath the Vyšehrad castle - a unique architecture style is a hidden treasure of Prague.
