Vysehrad used to be a castle from where kings ruled the country.
Not much of the castle is left though.
The entrance gate is guarded by a creepy monster.
This is the Saint Martinus Tower I think.
It's a small, but beautiful building in my opinion.
Next to it is this stone standard.
There were saints painted on all 4 sides of the standard. Not sure what saint this is though.
A lovely view on the St.-Petrus and Paulus Church.
Next to the church there's a graveyard where many rich and famous people are buried, like Antonin Dvorak and Bedfich Smetana.
There are many beautiful statues and other monuments on this graveyard:
What caught my eye most is the diversity in monuments and the themes that where used. Some where religious, others were all about mourning the dead, while others were a kind of tribute to the person who was buried there. All in all a very beautiful and impressive graveyard.
Tomorrow I'll show you pictures of the Olsany graveyard which we visited after this graveyard and where there were even more beautiful statues and monuments.
