Off the beaten track but worth it. History everywhere and one of the most beautiful churches we have ever visited. We spent several hours looking around, it felt like minutes.

Right beside the Vysehrad cathedral is the old cemetery Slavin. Many of greatest Czechs are resting here. This is the place of inspiration and remembering.

If you are a Czech person or if you are into Czech history, this is a place you should not miss. It actually is “just” a place nice enough for a walk but it is the names of famous Czechs buried here that make this cemetery special.

Peaceful, quiet, compact, right next to the basilica of Vysehrad is a good starting point for the discovery of the Vysehrad complex.

Chances are this cemetery will leave you moved or in awe.

What an interesting cemetery and well worth 15/20 minutes or so to walk around it, there are some spectacular plots and I am guessing to be buried here you need to have a fair bit of wealth. I didn't know who any of the stones belonged to but they were all so well kept

A cemetery it's a cemetery and nothing more, regardless of the celebrity of those buried there. I can't think at it as a touristic objective. Interesting, some of the funeral monuments, anyway.

I would never go to the cemetery if it was not a part of our excursion. This place is special because the most important Czech citizens were buried there. A majestic and very sad place.

Vysehrad cemetery welcomes you with a simple sign over the entrance gate:
Pax Vobis - Peace to you.

The cemetery , high above the river Vltava is a resting place for many famous Czech
composers, artists, writers and singers.

The grave markers range in size from elaborate oversized monuments and family tombs, to a small angel marking a child's grave.

My husband and I like to visit Vysehrad , to get away from the crowds.
We have been here in every season and the cemetery is just beautiful and serene every time.

Pax Vobis - Peace to you....

I like to walk through this cemetery often. For example, A.Dvorak, B.Smetana, K.Capek, E.Destinova are buried here. I like that the replacement stones of B. Smetana have been modified. These are the notes of his symphonic poem Vltava (River).

Travelled under our own steam from Prague by public transport (which is excellent by the way and very user friendly for non Czech speakers). My niece loved the beauty of the general location, I went as I wanted to see the final resting place of world famous Czech classical composers. Do a tour if you like or travel there yourself. A lovely half day away from the tourists in central Prague. Wear decent walking shoes or trainers as there’s some small inclines

... and so many things, so many ideas, thoughts, joy, sadness..., so many human different destinies...

The place of honor where important people of the nation rest for ages.
About 600 important personalities are buried here - writers, scientists, poets, visual artists, composers, actors, doctors, politicians.

The unique harmony of spirit and place!
