St. Wenceslas Vineyard and Villa Richter form a part of the Prague Castle complex and their premises offer a unique view of the most beautiful part of historical Prague. St. Wenceslas vineyard is the oldest vineyard in Bohemia, thus documenting the long tradition of wine growing in our territory. This exceptionally well exposed Southern slope was selected for growing grapevine by the Patron of the Czech lands, Prince Wenceslas, in the early 10th century. The vineyard has been named after him. In 2008, the tradition of growing grapevine was restored, and following the overall reconstruction of the entire premises, the territory was opened to the public for the first time in its over 1000 year history. Villa Richter is the second most significant Classicist monument in Prague, together with the Kinský Summer House, and at the same time, it is a prominent architectural dominant visible from the entire river bank and from most Prague bridges. The Piano Nobile Restaurant situated on the first floor offers modern meals inspired by the gastronomy of the Habsburg Monarchy.
The premises are accessible from the Old Castle Staircase with an entrance opposite the Prague Castle gate.
