Our AirBnB landlord recommended this place. We got the metro there and did a circular walk. It was peaceful and lovely walking around the gardens. We walked along the wall and had a fabulous view of the river.

The cemetery at Vysehrad was beautifully maintained and a treat to visit for me, remembering the great artists the Czech Republic shared with the world was a wonderful moment and I am so glad my guide included this stop.
