Located next to the main church at Vysehrad, this cemetery has a serene aura and lots of beautiful tombstones. When you visit Vysehrad, you should spend a few minutes to stroll through the cemetery.

A must visit if you have good weather during your stay in Prague. The cemetery is well taken care of and full of beautiful flowers. It's located in lovely Vysehrad where you can get great pictures over the river.
