Great church
John Hansen (4 years ago)
The church has a Romanesque ship and choir with rich cornices, not least on the sides of the choir. A later Gothic tower stands with combed gables. The church is whitewashed with white details and very ornate. Fjelde Church is in Romanesque style, the tower of which is an extension from the 16th century. The baptismal font is from approx. 1575, while the pulpit is from ca. 1610th The altarpiece of the church is a catechism mustache as it has no image but is a tablet with Bible quotes.

A beautiful red-washed village church, built around the year 1100, where the oldest parts of the ship and the choir are in Romanesque style, while the tower and porch are in Gothic style, all of monk in the monks. After belonging to the county of Christiansholm since 1839, the church passed to self-ownership on July 1, 1916.

St. Martin Rotunda

The Chapel of St. Martin is the only completely preserved Romanesque building in Vyšehrad and one of the oldest in Prague. In was built around 1100 in the eastern part of the fortified outer ward. Between 1100 and 1300, the Rotrunda was surrounded by a cemetery. The building survived the Hussite Wars and was used as the municipal prison of the Town of the Vyšehrad Hill.

During the Thirty Years’ War, it was used as gunpowder storage, from 1700 to 1750, it was renovated and reconsecrated. In 1784, the chapel was closed passed to the military management which kept using it as a warehouseand a cannon-amunition manufacturing facility. In 1841, it was meant to be demolished to give way to the construction of a new road through Vyšehrad. Eventually, only the original western entrance was walled up and replaced with a new one in the sountren side. The dilapidating Rotunda subsequently served as a shelter for the poor.
