The cemetery has been the resting place of many Czech composers, artists, sculptors, writers and intellectuals since 1869. Visitors will find a map outside showing the precise location of the graves of the more famous individuals including Antonin Dvorak, Bedrich Smetana and Josef Vaclav Myslbek. The grave of the Romantic poet Karel Hynek Macha was the assembly point in November 1989 for the officially sanctioned demonstration that led to over 50,000 people attempting to march on Wenceslas Square before being stopped in Narodni. The centerpiece of the cemetery is the Slavin Monument designed by Antonin Wiehl, the communal resting place of over 50 Czech artists and sculptors.
