    Vysehrad

    by jexelot Written Feb 13, 2004
    Vysehrad Background

    On a rock over the river Vltava, this is the ancient seat of the Premyslide princes. The oldest building there is the rotunda of St. Martin. In the vicinity of St. Peter and Paul's Church is a residence for canons, casemates, a park, and a cemetery called Slavin containing tombs of famous representatives of Czech culture. From the south part of the fortifications one has a beautiful view of Prague.

    Vishehrad (2) : cathedral

    by Sioma Updated Dec 4, 2004
    vishehrad cathedral

    ...nowadays, very few remain of the ancient buildings:
    Vishehrad appair like an esplanade, surrounded by big walls; the most valuable things remained are the S.Peter and Paul's cathedral (XI century...but the bell towers were built at the beginning of 1900), the cemetery (where you'll find the tobs of some important people, like the composers Smetana and Dvorak, and the writer Jan Neruda )...

    Tram along the Vlatava

    Haha, I waited for a red tram coming out of the short tunnel at Vysehrad, unfortunately it was blue. Too bad! :)

    The "official" cemetery of Prague. It is a very beautiful and peaceful place to calm down after all the tourist traps near Charles Bridge...
