    Bought tickets at 5pm, one hour to closing time. There were lots to see at the cemetery, synagogues and the ceremony room, but it was a pity we did not have enough time. Two hours will be good to visit everything, read the guides to display items at your own leisure.

    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.

    We stayed for 3 nights at the Marriott Courtyard in Prague. We appreciated the silence of our neighbors. Nice green lung in the middle of the city...

    A must see! Prague's oldest surviving burial ground dating to the middle of the 15th century. Because local laws at the time prohibited Jews from burying their dead outside the ghetto this graveyard is crammed with some 12,000 visible tombstones and thousands more bodies stacked up in 12 to 15 layers below ground (there are close to 85,000 dead here).

    Entrance is just across the street from the Zelivskeho subway stop. Yes, Kafka's gravesite is here, but I would recommend strolling around other parts of the cemetery first to get some context. You'll notice how many markers and memorials have dates of death between 1939 and 1945. And then think how many more graves there would have been if so many hadn't been killed in camps during the Holocaust. Remember that this is closed from Friday afternoon until Sunday morning and men should cover their heads.

    The cemetery is to be told as the most negative and gloomy place not only. in the Czech Republic but around Europe. During my visit I did not feel any negative waves maybe because of nice sunny weather when I was there. All graves are covered by ivy except one still erected grave of Maria Tuma died at the age of 29 years. Around 5000 people buried there. The walk around was great and relaxing with aura of mystery, melancholy and eerie.

    For film lovers, especial Amadeus movie, some parts were shot there.

    To get there you can take a car and park around in the entrance or take a bus 236 to bus stop U Drahane and walk via gardening colony to the entrance.

    Very nice layout. Great deal of thought was put into making this display and allowing us to remember hero’s of the past.

    This Baroque silver tomb is the final resting place of St. John of Nepomuk and is apparently built out of approximately two tons of silver. It is stunning and is probably the jewel in this amazing cathedral. It can be difficult to photograph or even view if it’s busy as people tend to hover around it for ages. Well worth the entrance fee alone.

    It's not the best to reach, especially for older people. But it's intimate, quiet and peaceful and you won't see a single soul here. Building new and stable chairs/benches was a great idea.
