  • A beautiful cemetery. Calm and commemorating past lives. Smetana's grave is worth seeing. Set on a beautiful hillside setting which is a nice contrast to the bustle of the old town.  more »

  • Beautifull view all around the area.. Definitely a must see place in Prague if you have spare time.. As the location was quite far from city center.
  • Beautiful area to visit during any season in Prague. You have some beautiful views of the river if you head to the west side of the cemetery. The basilica is worth a look around, with an optional donation entry fee. It's not too far to walk from the city centre, but it's a good opportunity to use the tram system to reach this part of Prague. There are some nice cafes and restaurants in the area if you don't mind walking a few minutes.
  • The place even though it is cemetary has special atmosphere. Various people who greatly influenced Czech history are burried here. If you visit not only the main paths you can enjoy great variety of sculptures.
  • This is a small, but very interesting cemetery. There's lots to see here and in the vicinity.
