Nice little church with a super sweet pastor.

It is not the impression "Danish village church" you get when you see Øster Ulslev Church for the first time. What you first notice is the octagonal spire in the middle of the roof. As far as is known, it was set up in 1694. The church is considered one of Lolland's elders, although one has no definite baptismal certificate for the church, so it is known that it was built in the Romanesque period from 1150 to 1300.

Very beautiful small village church, which is centrally located in the city. Built around the year 1225. The roof rider was added in 1693. The porch is from 1854 and replaced an older and somewhat larger one. Legend has it that a gentleman named Ugge has ruled Øster- and Vester Ulslev and with his ships had winter berths in both places, "for which credible characteristics can still be shown and about that there were more letters in the diocesan coffin, which here still stands in Øster Ulslev church , but were lost in the Swedish feud «. (The Swedes crossed the ice from Langeland to Lolland in 5-6 February 1658)

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.
