From time immemorial the mind is influenced by the Czech wine. 1104 years it is just this year, from the time when he grew up Prince Wenceslas, the patron of Czech lands, but also a passionate winemaker.

Four years ago, after extensive renovations was reopened along with Villa Richter.

According to some sources, is the history of the vineyard on Opyš refers to the year 1375, and its founder Charles IV. Whether it is, St. Wenceslas vineyard is now associated with the adoption of Christianity and the development of Czech statehood, at least as it presents the current operators.

As the Cuban Embassy, the seat of the castle guards, the Interior Ministry and served in the post-war neoclassical Villa Richter, built in the area of ​​vineyards in the thirties of the 19th century. Its walls listened many things, especially when it settled in the secret state security. The vineyard, since what he stood villa, too overrode any of its inhabitants. No, that would perhaps not find delight in the wine, but still it was easier to nurture a simple English-style park.

What happened behind the wall next to the Castle Steps, about how we just speculate. One thing is certain - vineyard and eventually even itself Richter's villa, they were pretty confused. The public was poorer for decades one of the most beautiful Prague prospects. Today everything is different. Campus administrators and their present stand at Villa Richter right track. St. Wenceslas vineyard is open to the public without restriction and prices near the Castle, they can even be human. Glass of wine in there because everyone can give without having to worry about that week will be without food. Eat well and drink but can also in style - but that's obviously a cost.
