Photographer's Note

St Peter & Paul Church is definitely the most visible Vysehrad's building and the second oldest preserved one after St Martin Rotunda. However, assessing its age is not so simple. We know it was founded as a capitular church around 1070 by Prince Vratislav II in style of a three-aisled Romanesque basilica. It has been rebuilt several times though, and its today's appearance is neo-Gothic. Unfortunately, all you can see on this photo is actually a new building designed and built by Josef Mocker and Frantisek Miks between 1885 and 1903.

Due to limited space it's impossible to photograph front view of St Peter & Paul Church from Vysehrad. I took this photo from the railway bridge that you could notice in the right of my first picture of Vysehrad. By the way, I also took my recent view of the Vltava River from the same place.
