Photographer's Note

You have already learned from my recent posts that Vysehrad is a Baroque fortress built in 17th century on place of old castle established in 10th century by the Czech ruling dynasty of the Premyslids. Unfortunately, except St Martin's Rotunda and archaeological discoveries, almost nothing was preserved to our times.

But Vysehrad is still a nice place to visit, mostly because of its unique atmosphere and beautiful parks. In fact, parks and gardens cover most of its surface making it one of the largest green are of central Prague. That's why Vysehrad is a very popular recreation place of Prague's inhabitants. Most of the time you'll find here more people walking with their dogs or young couples in love than tourists

This photo is taken from the top of a fortification wall. As you can see, inner sides of Vysehrad's magnificent walls are not so steep as outer sides and are nicely wooded. Among vegetation there are many little paths and lovely corners. My camera was turned inwards here, but if you sit down to one of these benches, you will see a beautiful panorama of central Prague.
