Vyšehrad

Pay a visit to a place which ranks among the most important Czech national historic sites.

Vyšehrad is one of the oldest provably inhabited places in the Czech territory. It experienced a large boom under Charles IV’s reign, when the local settlement thrived with all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, based around lots of residential houses, markets and milling throngs of people. All of this contributed to an unrepeatable atmosphere, some of which has remained up to this day. Charles IV was a far-sighted ruler who knew only too well how important water was for residential areas. Having this in mind, water piping was installed in Vyšehrad in 1361. However, that was not the only innovation. Most of the buildings standing here were rebuilt and modernised. The boom was obviously accompanied by the construction of new chapels and other sacral buildings. The importance of Vyšehrad was highlighted by the fact that according to the new coronation rules established by Charles, this place was the starting point of the coronation procession. Although Vyšehrad abounds in architectural gems well-worth admiring, there is one that stands out above the others. And that is the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, whose history dates back to the first century of the second millennium. Each visitor to Vyšehrad is literally guaranteed an exceptional experience and spectacle.
