Thursday Thoughts – Prague Cemeteries

We started our first day with some cemeteries… Somehow I love walking there, and whenever I go to a big city, I visit at least one cemetery.

Doors to churches and gates to cemeteries… Old Jewish cemeteries especially, are very beautifully ageing, because they are often left as they are. There are no relatives alive anymore who can tend to them.

Signs of Franz Kafka are everywhere in Prague, but here is his last resting place.

Maybe you like to walk in cemeteries too – the stillness and peaceful surroundings, contemplating life and the beauty of it all.

  1. I seem to remember we visited this cemetery (we were in Prague in 1980 so forgive me if my memory is hazy!) but I don’t think I appreciated or captured its beauty as you have done – and as I hope I would want to do were I to visit today. That door at the top of the page is fantastic and I love your images of the details such as the tap and the rusting wrought iron.

  2. Dear Leya
    Umberto Eco wrote a novel about the old Jewish cemetery. We always visited the grave of Rabbi Löw and put a stone from our beach on his pyramid as it is the custom.
    We always like to visit old cemeteries as well. It tells you a lot about the culture of this area.
    Thanks and cheers

  3. Beautiful! I don’t usually have a cemetery on my list of places to visit in a city I go to but have been to some e.g. in Milan and Krakow. And of course the ones near where I live.

  4. Beautiful photos. I love that rusty faucet! I too enjoy walking in cemeteries, feeling the peacefulness there, and wondering about the lives of those buried there.
