This is an interesting, fairly compact cemetery with beautiful sculptures and fascinating graves. It only takes a few minutes to wander through and appreciate some of the amazing Czech history on display here.

This is a beautiful cemetery to walk through with lovely monuments worth a visit if you’re going to see the Basilica of Saint Peter and St. Paul. Dvorak’s grace is here.

Spent some time just walking through the cemetery, some interesting things to look at. Did this in combination with walking through the citadel and scenic lookout path.

It shouldn't be a surprise that you are bound to find a gorgeous cemetery when visiting one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I honestly did not expect and I was surprised (one of the many reasons why I am writing this review)....More

Even if cemeteries are not high up on your list of places to visit, this one should be. The glitterati of Czech Society are buried here - artists, writers, musicians and prominent citizens. It is tranquil, peaceful and also thought provoking and the monumental masonry...More
