Tour Ramparts, Underground Galleries & Prague's most Impressive Cemetery at Vyšehrad
Join us as we explore the recently reconstructed Gothic Cellars at ancient Vyšherad This permanent exhibition, The Historic Faces of Vyšehrad’, has been prepared by the Vyšehrad National Cultural Monument in co-operation with the City of Prague Museum. It contains exhibits loaned by the Institute of Archaeology of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague and the Royal Collegiate Chapter of SS Peter & Paul at Vyšehrad.
Visitors will see evidence of human presence and activity dating from the third and fourth centuries B.C. to the 20th century A.D. including a sarcophagus, insignia recalling the incorporation of an independent Vyšehrad into Prague proper, and relics of certain Vyšehrad guilds. Other exceptional exhibits include a small, 11th century cross found as early as at the end of the 19th century in the Vyšehrad cemetery on the site of the grave of composer Bedřich Smetana, and a talc medallion of roughly the same age, found beneath Vyšehrad Rock.
