We walked around this old part of the city and came across the cemetery. Very atmospheric, obviously cared for and very different to most English cemeteries. Saw an artist rehighlighting the wording on tombstones as the church bells sounded. Didn’t use the available app audio...More

Normally I am not one to admire cemeteries, but I enjoyed my visit. Not only many famous people, including, for example, Dvořák, are buried here, but the cemetery itself is very clean and beautiful with all the sculptures. There is no good reason to skip...More
