Nice village by the lake. Unfortunately our experience was ruined by a crazy dog owner whose dog was let out of the house into public property and almost attacked us. Beware if you walk over the bridge and try to walk up to the church at the top of the hill. I’m sharing the location on the screenshot, she looked out the window and didn’t even bother to come out of the house to get her vicious dog.

The landscape of the bridge was great. However, road to this place was very hard and dangerous. I didn't expect such a narrow road for 2 ways on the mountain without any bump stops. If you decide getting there - make sure you have enough time till the sunset. It was a big area near, so you can hangout with your friends. Of course, you want to see great panorama of the river few kilometers further. But be careful.

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.
