I describe this as beautiful because of the colour of the brickwork, the round unusual shape and the decorated entrance door (see pic). To add to this magical view is the watchtower above the main part of the fortress, the shape of the viewing area...More

An 11th century chapel situated in the heart of the Vysehard citadel, but not open during our visit to the area. However I understand it does open for religious services. Behind the chapel are stunning views from the citadel walls.
