Very sad place
Aug 2020
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.

Heart-achingly beautiful.

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....

cemetery of important Czechs
Oct 2019
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).

Beautiful place. A must for music fans

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!

Tranquil place.

This cemetery is attached to the Basilica Of St. Peter And St. Paul, so both attractions are easily visited in one trip. This is a beautiful place where Prague's great and good have been laid to rest. Antonin Dvorak and Bedrich Smetana are easily found near the main entrance. Nearby is the Tomb of the Fifty Artists, containing the remains of Prague's finest artists, musicians and writers of the last century. We could have spent a lot longer here. It makes for a tranquil but fascinating visit.

Must do!

Very ornate graves, lots of cool people. Not much in the way of information, would be good to look in advance at what is there (/have Wikipedia open whilst walking around). Right next to a beautiful basilica, a lovely walk up in the mid morning.

Antonín Dvořák tomb is here
Oct 2019
The Vysehrad Cemetery is a cemetery on the grounds of Saint Peter and Paul Basilica. It’s a lovingly tended cemetery and contains the graves and tombs of many well known Czech personalities including that of Antonín Dvořák Tomb. There’s a map at the entrance of the cemetery so you can make a beeline for the tomb instead of having to search for it. It’s easy to find anyway, just follow all the tourists.

If you still come to Vysehrad, do not miss a visit to this cemetery.

Sure, this is a cemetery, but you can consider it an exhibition of sculptures, outdoors, very, very beautiful. Everything is clean and tidy and you will be delighted. In my travels I visited many cemeteries and on two of them I recommend you to see them - Merry Cemetery in Sapanta - Romania and Vysehrad Cemetery - Prague

Worth a visit

Quite a small cemetery, but very interesting. It is a walled off part of a much larger park / hill, which is very pleasant. Can be a bit tricky to get to I found. I looked up a map of the graves online, which didn't have a key, so whilst the significant graves were marked, it did not say whose it was. The map I found was clearly a photo of the map somewhere at the cemetery, but I just couldn't find it! That actually does have names I believe. Probably just me being thick. It would have saved me a bit of hunting, but still it was pleasant to walk around.
