After all, you will discover the legendary Vyšehrad fortress – a high hill, open to all winds, where ancient Czech legends are indistinguishably intertwined with reality. In a fight for treasure, you will face a battle with the Evil One himself… Try your luck in the company of the charming guide Diana and the fairy Princess Libuše! The ancient ruins, the most beautiful old churches and chapels, the graves of the most famous Czech musicians and writers, one of the best observation platforms in Prague – all this awaits you at Vyšehrad.
