No possibility drove up to the ruins.

Ruins of a medieval castle on the lake. From what I read, the castle is currently in private hands, some work is underway there, so perhaps it will become an attractive tourist destination. At the moment, it is a bit disappointing. Nice views, the proximity of the lake is definitely an advantage. Nice idea for a point during a bike trip.

An interesting, though severely dilapidated building, lying on the shores of a small lake, which, interestingly, was a defensive church, and later a castle and the seat of various families. The current owner tries to protect the remains of the building with modest means, and even recreate something there (a fragment of the wall). However, you can only dream of a reconstruction such as Poledno, Gniew or Świecie. The passionate present there told in an interesting and accessible way about the facility itself and its situation.

The ruins of the castle are not in the best condition. You can see that it was "taken care of" not long ago - the walls are protected against the destructive effects of time. Entry to the castle is forbidden - dangerous. When we got near the ruins, a gentleman who said we were on private property appeared and asked us to leave it. I do not know who is the owner (administrator) of the ruins and who can stay and under what rights.

The place is a private area, so you cannot enter and explore.

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.
