The Raikkulas Manor building is one of the most beautiful examples of classical style in Estonia??. Today, the estate hosts book fairs and summer performances. The restored back staircase of the manor is suitable for concerts. We were lucky the weather was great отлич.

Eestimaa nn täiskasvanute mõis, võimsa energeetikaga kompleks, ürgsete elupuudega ring, paljastatud paekivi mustriga uhkete sammaste ning rõngas_võlvidega paraad_trepiga peahoone koos samas väärtuses ja kaaluga abihoonetega. Vaieldamatu pärl Eestimaa süames!

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.
