    Visiting Prague for just two days, we came across the Jewish quarter. We saw the grave yard and my daughter wanted to look round so bought a ticket for that, which included visit to the Spanish synagogue, but that was closed. You enter through a monument showing every name and dates of birth and death of every Jew killed in WW2, then you walk through the grave yard. So many tomb stones, which seem to have just been thrown there. Then you realise the wall around the grave yard is very deep, and thousands of Jews are buried on top of each other. Once again another reminder of how cruel a human being can be so cruel to their fellow man/woman/child.

    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.

    Big, old and beautiful cemetery set in a park-like scenery. Some of the graves and crypts are very old and look really magical. You can take a nice, quiet and peaceful walk through the cemetery, but it can be quite crowded sometimes at the gates.

    A beautiful element of a tour of the Jewish Quarter. Over the centuries, earth has been added with graves laid upon one another. A very pleasant walk around on a sunny day and so much history.

    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.
