Photographer's Note

Not many foreign visitors of Prague omit Prague Castle (Prazsky hrad) from their sightseeing tour, but few of them visit the second most important castle in Prague -- Vysehrad. And if they visit it, they are quite surprised, because there is no castle there. Yes, it may sound confusing, but it is true: Vysehrad -- one of the two well known castles in Prague -- isn't a castle.

Along with a couple of following Vysehrad's photos I'll explain, how this happened. Until than enjoy a distant view of Vysehrad as you can see it across the Vltava River from Smichov or Lesser Town (Mala Strana).

Update: The story continues...
