“Peaceful resting place”
Review of National Cemetery

National Cemetery
Ranked #182 of 1,029 things to do in Prague
Attraction details
Reviewed 24 July 2017

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.

Established in 1869 on the grounds of Vysehrad Castle. It is the final resting place of Czech famous history. The centerpiece of the cemetery is the Slavin tomb.

If you'll visit Vysehrad than you'll certainly stop also on National cemetery. Here you'll found very nice and great monuments of well known people. Peacefull place...

Vyšehrad has always been one of my favourite spots in this wonderful city, and the National Cemetery ranks alongside it's more famous and bigger counterparts at Père Lachaise and Highgate! Here there is reverential tranquility and the visitor can see the final resting places of the Father of Czech music, Bedrich Smetena and his more recent compatriot Antonin Dvorak who is perhaps better known for his compositions from the New World, and close by some names that have more associations with the less happy parts of Czech recent history.

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.
