  • The cemetery and church are beautiful places to visit. As musicians, we went to pay our 'homage' to Dvorak, Smetana, Suk, Kubelik, Ancerl ... the list goes on. The 'crowded' cemetery is just amazing a...  more »
  • Here in Vysehrad cemetery you will found a lot of very beautifull monuments of world known personalities. Very well-maintained cemetery. 
  • If Vyšehrad visits must not overlook the cemetery, which offers part of the history of Prague and shows you as a cemetery it may seem like a work of art.

  • 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.
