In the cemetery there are so many memorials to famous Czech people who have contributed to the wonderful Czech culture. You can just walk in and explore, soaking up the atmosphere. I got a real sense of creativity, tolerance, diversity and unity. There are also guided tours if you're unfamiliar with Czech cultural history.

A little bit further away from the main attractions in the city, sitting on top of a little hill is a very nice church and graveyard, surrounded by a parkland within a fortified wall. You get a great view over the river looking back at the city and its a great way of getting a free vantage point of the... More

The view from inside this fortified city is amazing! The church and castle are great places to visit without the crouds, you can even pack a pic-nic as there is a beautiful park there as well. A walk through the cemetary is a must!

Vysehrad was recommended to us by our walking tour guide who took us through the Old Town. He thought it was the third place to visit after the Old Town and the castle and we agreed. It was a lovely walk from our hotel in Mala Strana along the river across the bridge and then up the hill. The grounds... More

It is really worth to see in Prague! Not bir, but you wouldn't feel tired, when you decide to walk there. They have an impressive St. Paul and Peter chapel and mediaeval cemetery. The view on Vtalva river is also breathtaking!

This site has the oldest surviving building, the Rotunda of St Martin. The castle itself was founded in the 10th century, but most everything has been covered or altered to fit later tastes. However, the site is wonderful, and the neo-Gothic church of Sts Peter and Paul, built in the 1400's and covered in the last century, is an Art... More

A fantastic spot. The church was magnificent with a wow factor. It highly decorated walls are wonderful. The cemetery is well laid out and the view from the highest spot looks out over the river with view of the city and beyond.

My husband and I happened to discover this place while walking around aimlessly. Our hotel receptionist did suggest it to us also but we were going to give it a miss having not heard much about it. However we were glad we came here! With a bit of a walk, this place is nice and quiet with a church inside... More
