Jump to: navigation, search

The South of Prague consists of the numbered districts Praha 2, Praha 4, Praha 11 and Praha 12.

Get in[edit]

Take Metro line C to stations Vyšehrad, Pražského povstání or Pankrác to get to northern parts of Praha 4. Further on line C are stations Budějovická, Kačerov, Chodov or Háje, which provide transport services to southeastern parts of Prague 4 and Prague 11 (not much to see there, it's basically suburb area of prefab houses from the eighties). Southernmost part of Prague 4 (city quarters Bráník and Modřany) are accessible by tram lines 3, 17 and 21.

See[edit][add listing]

  • Vyšehrad ("The High Castle") - seat of legendary Czech princes for centuries before Prague Castle was built. Site of St. Paul and Peter's Cathedral, as well as the famous Vyšehrad cemetery known as 'Slavín', burial grounds of extraordinary Czechs. You can get here by metro line C, station "Vyšehrad". Don't forget to visit the casemate of Vyšehrad; they're rather picturesque, plus you can see originals of some statues from Charles Bridge.

From the ramparts of Vyšehrad, you'll have an excellent view of Prague castle, Vltava, Smíchov (former workers' slum and industrial quarter of town) and Podskalí (area under Vyšehrad, once inhabited almost entirely by raftsmen). If you take a look from southern rampart, you'll see Kavčí hory, headquarters of Czech Television - rather futuristic building from 60s. For closer look to Kavčí hory, take metro line C, station "Pražského povstání".

  • Most inteligence ("The Bridge of Intelligentsia") - majestic railway bridge built in 50s, longest ferroconcrete railway bridge in Europe. It was build by forced labour of members of intelligentsia, who were transfered to manual professions by rule of communist government. As a monument to the stupidity of the communist rulers, only a single rail was laid on the two-rail bridge, because the second rail didn't fit into the tunnel on one bank. The bridge remains in service to this day and is used mainly for cargo trains.

If you want to visit the bridge, take a tram from "Karlovo náměstí" to station "Bráník"; although bridge is not meant for pedestrians, it is accessible through stair ramps at pillars.
