Prague & the Czech Republic - Smichov & Vysehrad (Chapter)
This is the Smíchov & Vyšehrad chapter from Lonely Planet's Prague & the Czech Republic guidebook.
Smíchov, south of Malá Strana, is a former industrial area with few sights but lots of pubs. Vyšehrad, south of Nové Město, is a leafy residential area, dominated by an ancient castle said to be where Prague was founded.
- Spend an afternoon at the Vyšehrad Citadel, enjoying views from the rampart walls over the city. Don’t miss the evocative cemetery, with its pantheon to Czech arts luminaries. Pack a picnic lunch and, with luck, catch an open-air concert.
- While away an evening drinking and discussing at a rowdy Smíchov pub such as Zlatý klas.
- Enjoy a night of high-quality jazz on the river at Jazz Dock.
