PRAGUE WAR CEMETERY is, in fact, a British plot adjoining a boundary wall on the north side of the Civil Cemetery of Olsany. Olsany is on the eastern outskirts of Prague about 3 kilometres from the centre of the city on the main road from Prague to Strasnice, which runs due east from Wenceslas Square. The approach to the PRAGUE WAR CEMETERY is the first turning left from the main road past the entrance gates of the Civil Cemetery.
