A must visit if you have good weather during your stay in Prague. The cemetery is well taken care of and full of beautiful flowers. It's located in lovely Vysehrad where you can get great pictures over the river.

In the evening, come here a little uncomfortable. The cemetery is a cemetery. But here there are beautiful tombstones. You can walk along the paths between the tombs - viewing these works of art.

There are a lot of headstones, and set very close to each other. It makes a very interesting stroll to see how ornate the markers are. There is a reference guide by the cathedral that shows where the marker is located. Numerous Notable famous names.
