Night visit in the past of the castle which associates anguish fear nervous laughter !! I recommend completely. The speakers are really in their role, the guide is scary. All this in a very beautiful castle which is conducive to a terrifying visit. We went there as a family and loved it. We will go back for other events, sure !!!

More than pleasant guided visit to the Château de Trélon. The guide is very understanding, kind, cultured and funny. He made us discover every corner of the castle with elegance and romanticism. The place offers an ideal panoramic view of the fields. We feel good and rested, in the company of a squirrel seen near a tree. The rooms are very luxurious and loaded with a fascinating story that the guide has managed to convey to us with precision.

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.
