Mr Monkey peered through a hole in a wall at the top of the Vyšehrad cliff. In Czech legend, Princess Lubiše was on this rock when she founded the city of Prague and foretold its greatness, and it was from here that the heroic horse Šemík saved his master Horymir by leaping across the Vltava. Popping outside the wall for a moment Mr Monkey inspected a medallion commemerating Professor Jan Krejčí, the father of Czech geology. This plaque was originally at the bottom of the cliff, beside the road tunnel through the Vyšehrad rock.
