You have already learned from my recent posts that Vysehrad is a Baroque fortress built in 17th century on place of old castle established in 10th century by the Czech ruling dynasty of the Premyslids. Unfortunately, except St Martin's Rotunda and archaeological discoveries, almost nothing was preserved to our times.
But Vysehrad is still a nice place to visit, mostly because of its unique atmosphere and beautiful parks. In fact, parks and gardens cover most of its surface making it one of the largest green are of central Prague. That's why Vysehrad is a very popular recreation place of Prague's inhabitants. Most of the time you'll find here more people walking with their dogs or young couples in love than tourists
This photo is taken from the top of a fortification wall. As you can see, inner sides of Vysehrad's magnificent walls are not so steep as outer sides and are nicely wooded. Among vegetation there are many little paths and lovely corners. My camera was turned inwards here, but if you sit down to one of these benches, you will see a beautiful panorama of central Prague.

Serwus Marek !
Funny coincidence with these parks and historical buildings somewhere hidden :) Your point of view is the best I can imagine. I also love such green areas, probably the most suitable place to take a rest after working day in the big City.
Have a quiet day :) !

Dobry Den Marek,
AGain here a view with a definite southern character, the look through the branches to the rising cathedral towers is nice and gives a countryside dimension to your capital, the benches are inviting, pity you cut a bit the right one.
Have a nice day,

toujours ces deux clochers en vedette.
Les couleurs sont superbes, chauffées par le soleil.
J'aime beaucoup les verts et les tronc bien bruns et détaillés.
Le ciel aussi d'un très beau bleu.

What a beautiful picture, you chosen excellent angle for taken this picture, the two towers between the pine trees give a great composition.

The two well known towers are here very well placed in the picture, in between the trees. The lighting is very good, nice piece of work!

Great clarity in composition here, as you bring out the fine but not oversharpened details of the beautiful trees, with the church peering at us in the background. The benches balance the scene nicely. Well seen and presented. Regards.

Hi Marek. I added this shot to everybody's favorite theme, Benches! :) Nice use of the benches to create an interesting foreground. While there is a bit of break in the trees to enable a better view of the fortress, I miss yesterday's shot with the notch. But still a great shot Marek.

The composition of the photograph is very well made. The centring of the two towers have a very interesting effect of symmetry with the trees.

Well seen for taking the towers between the trees, Marek. Once again a very sharp and clean picture.
