Vysehrad Slavin Cemetry (Vysehradsky hrbitov)
The cemetery has been the resting place of many Czech composers, artists, sculptors, writers and intellectuals since 1869. Visitors will find a map outside showing the precise location of the graves of the more famous individuals including Antonin Dvorak, Bedrich Smetana and Josef Vaclav Myslbek. The grave of the Romantic poet Karel Hynek Macha was the assembly point in November 1989 for the officially sanctioned demonstration that led to over 50,000 people attempting to march on Wenceslas Square before being stopped in Narodni. The centerpiece of the cemetery is the Slavin Monument designed by Antonin Wiehl, the communal resting place of over 50 Czech artists and sculptors.

i got explosive diarrhea, then there was a flash flood and i got washed away. Then i fell of a cliff and got hit by a plane on the wayd down. I managed to land on some jagged rocks and was only parylized from the waist down. All in all it was a good trip.
One of the most beautiful places in an unbelievably beautiful city. My visit to Vysehrad was one of my favorite outings while I was in Prague.
Some of the original statues from the Charles Bridge are stored here. The gardens are lovely, and the view of the city is incredible.
