Statue of Libuše and Premysl in Vyšhrad

Vyšehrad Statues

Vyšehrad is a pleasant place for a stroll away from the multitude of tourists in Prague centre.  From the Museum metro station you take the red line towards Haje for two stops only.

A walk around the grounds will reveal rather large statues by Myslbek that used to grace the city's Palackeho most.  Four couples are dotted across the corners of the lawn, all taken from Prague legends:
