Vysehrad Garden is one of the best garden in Prague. An oasis of tranquillity and beautiful walks offers not only romantic nooks and vistas of the Vltava River and Prague Castle and a look back at recent history and profound, reverent remembrance of Czech greats, but also offers a children’s playground and several cafés and a restaurant.

History Of Vysherad Garden
In the ancient times, there were no trees at Vyšehrad, only on the outside the area was encircled by woods. After the Hussite Wars, vineyards, gardens and fields were established here. The 18th century and the first half of the 19th century brought no green to Vyšehrad. The first reference to some planted trees only dates back to 1841, when an alley of locust trees was planted by the path to Tábor, which today connects all the Vyšehrad gates. The green vegetation of the time-honoured Vyšehrad was mostly established during the 19th century, and largely consists of two originally private parks – Karlach Gardens and Štulc Gardens, two private gardens – the New Provost’s Garden and the New Deanery Garden, and then the Park under the Ramparts (Pod hradbami) and the Vyšehrad cemetery (www.prague.eu)
