Vineyards near Prague Castle
According to a 10th century legend, St. Wenceslas Vineyard on the south hill of Prague Castle was founded by Prince Wenceslas who cultivated the wine himself. Sometime after the wine crops started deteriorating, a nearby classical villa built in 1835 was used by various institutions and individuals according to whatever power was in control of Prague.
