  • it took us about 15-20 minutes from the city center. The cemetery is small but VERY picturesque. Also, we found a kind of hidden spot and the view from there was absolutely beautiful.  more »
  • Where it is good to go and in the spirit of a bow. Here are repeating history. Beloved and unloved here lies often side by side. The history of the many vindicated even if life were full of injustice.

  • Squeamish people are better off not coming here. Whenever I told people that when I was in Prague I really enjoyed a walk through a graveyard some eyebrows would be raised. The site is beautiful with great sculptures and tombstones.
  • Very stunning. Especially when the church bells sound
  • Charming place and surrounding area is so quite! Worth to visit.
  • One of the famous cemeteries of the world. Its really nice and well-maintained, and its interesting to stroll between the tombs, looking for famous personalities...
  • Cemetery of famous Czechs. There's something to it, that's mysterious.

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
