Mr Monkey at the Vyšehrad National Cultural Monument

"It's time to explore an alleged birthplace of the Czech people"

Mr Monkey had heard that Vyšehrad mountain was one of the most important sites in Czech culture, and that some legends claimed it was the first part of Prague to be populated*, so he followed the signs from Vyšehrad metro station to the fortress, so that he could see what was there.

* Pesky archaeologists disagree, pointing out that there were people living in Hradčany, the castle area, before Vyšehrad.
