The cemetery of Czech outstanding personalities

V Pevnosti 159/5b, 128 00 Praha 2
We recommend walking along the riverside from Charles Bridge all the way to Vyšehrad. You can catch tram #17 all the way to Vytoñ or take the red metro line to Vyšehrad.


This is probably one of the most beautiful places in Prague. Up at Vyšehrad (the high castle) you will find St. Peter´s and St. Paul´s basilica housing a cemetery that can be described like an art gallery. This cemetery was established in 1869 with the main idea to create a resting place for outstanding Czech personalities. You can find between the headstones politics, sculptors, painters, athletes and the great artist Alphonse Mucha. The main tomb of the cemetery is called Slavín, definitely the masterpiece of the cemetery.
