This small cemetery is a cemetery of czech famous people, as writers, componists, actors, singers artists and scientists, from 19. century. All around are crypts covered by arcades. Here you can see very well according to the grave or crypt, who was poor or rich. Although there is an well known writer and did a great job, at that time his work was not honoured.
I just picked up some people (in the photos): Antonin Dvorak - czech componist, opera Rusalka, lived in 19. century.
Jan Neruda - lived in 19. cen. in Mala Strana. Probably you will see Dum U Dvou Sluncu, his house. His poems and work is adherent to Mala Strana.
Vlasta Burian - czech comedian actor, lived in 20. cen.
Karel Capek - czech writer, who among others made up a word ROBOT. Lived in 19. and 20. cen.
