A symbol of Czech statehood, Vyšehrad National Cultural Monument sits on a high promontory overlooking the Vltava River. This "Castle on the Heights," as its name roughly translates, notably contains a neo-Gothic church and an 11th-century rotunda, the oldest one in Prague. The extensive complex of structures also includes a 19th-century cemetery that's the final resting place for many Czech luminaries, including Alfons Mucha, Bedrich Smetana, and Antonin Dvorak. Many of the cemetery's headstones represent examples of outstanding artistic achievement; Dvorak's tombstone counts among the finest works of sculptor Ladislav Saloun, also interred here.

  • At first, I hesitated about whether I should visit this place due to limited time. I’m glad I decided to go there as it has a lovely vibe and I could spend half a day in this area just walking...

  • Incredibly nice personal, you might see a small one room gallery as a disadvantage, but I think it's the perfect place to really study the artists and their art, perhaps discussing it with the nice woman working there
  • Amazing view! Worth it!
