Vyaehrad, a hill fort perched on a rock above the river, is an
integral part of the Prague skyline. The twin spires of the
Neo-Gothic Saints Peter and Paul Church are visible from afar and
the fa?žade has beautiful carvings. No other site in the city has as
much distinction attached to it. Behind the church is the Slavin
Cemetery where many distinguished Czech artists, scientists and
academics are buried. From the battlements the view of the Vltava
valley is superb, and many tourists in Prague come to Vyaehrad
simply to take pictures of the impressive vista.
