  • The first thing that attracts the attention of Vysehrad at the entrance to the territory through the leopoldovi gate-St. Martin's Rotunda (Rotunda svatého Martina na Vyšehradě), built in the Romanesque style and dating back to the mid 11th century. In Prague several rotundas (or even cylindrical buildings, crowned with a dome), all of which, at first glance, look like. Visegrad Rotunda, named after the patron saint of the poor, soldier, suknodelov, pets and birds, Alpine shepherds went, if I may say so, "water, fire and copper pipes": She burned, and came under shelling (in 1757 during the siege Prague shot hit the wall, and so left it forever), and was used as a gunpowder warehouse, gun shop, commercial storage, shelter for vagrants. Usually fellow tourists make wonderful photo installations by the entrance. And few know that eye pleasing neo-Roman Portal there are newly-previously available entrance (West side) prevented prolagaemoj in the late 19th century road, so in 1878-1880, under the direction of architect Antonín Baum (Antonín Baum) was produced reconstruction of buildings with the construction of a new entrance, decorated with motifs of the Vysehrad Codex.

  • I dont know there means. So to me. Just strange structure. Vysehrad is good. It’s just part of vysehrad to me
  • A little rotunda. It's just outside the road to the cathedral. Around the rotunda you can go on the wall and enjoy a nice view of Prague
  • Amazing place, a must visit
  • One of the oldest rotundas in Czech republic in romanesce style.
  • A nice little old monastery, this place is pretty impressive for its size.
