  • A magical cemetery beautiful St. Lazarus built in 1762 by design, Anselmo Luraga, a Czech architect and Builder, of Italian origin. This architect is signed under many buildings both in Prague and outside. Even since 1752 he carried out the reconstruction of the Prague Castle. He became the successor to the Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer, both in the works for the local nobility and religious affairs. Curly top and oval Chapel window give a beautiful contrast with the opadanými trees in the background. On the opposite side you'll find the neo-Gothic tomb of Johann Sametze of kaplovou 19. of the century. You just roam around the graveyard and you meet the feeder for the birds. Additional feeder to the owners of one grave that was attached to the tombstone for a porcelain hrdličku ... ... life and death. ... You will meet the last resting place of Karel Kryl, a wonderful singer-songwriter and poet. Over a cemetery watching good four-legged soul-cats. Your House to the cemetery. When you embark on a leisurely walk and or visit their nice, so make sure to take something for cats and birds. I think that especially in this weather will appreciate it.

  • The old cemetery with an old church Saint Lazarus famous Anselm Lurago, which buried some famous figures of art and culture. Very relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. If you visit the břevnov monastery, it makes sense to look to and fro.

  • I don't usually review graveyards, but this is still a beautiful place.
  • One of the most beautiful cemeteries I've ever seen. It is built on an uneven terrain, sloping down from the entrance to a small valley and then slightly rising. There is among others buried Jan Patočka and Karel Kryl. When you visit it after all souls ' day at the time when it is already dark, and you look down from the entrance, you will see dozens of flashing lights and the faint silhouettes of monuments-it's the impression of looking at the "city of the dead", seen from a bird's eye view. If you're lucky enough, to see other visitors, so you will feel something like "life settlement" and "peace of mind". A couple of decades ago, when he used to be a cemetery at night closed just lock on the chain, which was draped over the entrance only a metal gate, I used to sit there-I have a special experience from that time: to the right of the main road, a short distance from the entrance, is the morgue. Out of curiosity I went to her door and opened it, inside were bier and coffin (if empty, I have no idea). Before the coffin was one Chair and a piece of semicircle behind her stood in several rows of other chairs. It seems as if someone was on all the chairs and said, who is in the coffin. It was a very special experience with indescribable atmosphere.
