  • Walking through the streets of Prague, we saw in the distance something protruding from this Hill, without knowing what it was. We then decided to follow the trail (less than 10 minutes), and we found ourselves in front of the Church of St. Peter and Paul next to the Vyšehrad cemetery. Not knowing anything about it I try to search for news on my guida...ma there is nothing. Then I search the web and see that according to the myth the history of Prague began precisely on this hill. Beyond the legends, the cemetery of artists is very impressive.

  • I know it's a cemetery but is really nice! Though honestly I am opposed to this kind of visits! It is still a sacred place!

  • Old cemetery. Quiet, solemn place. On it are buried many famous figures, such as the Czech composer Smetana and artist Mucha. At the entrance there is a diagram showing the most significant burial.

  • 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.
