Some 70 kilometres west of Prague, this 17th century Bohemian cemetery has seen its original masonry wall largely destroyed, leaving the site open to the elements. Dozens of gravestones remain at the site. As the cemetery is a few hundred metres from the road, an agreement had to be reached with a local farmer to allow the construction workers an access route to the cemetery.
