Lonely Planet review for Brick Gate
At the 19th-century Brick Gate, on the northern side of Vyšehrad, you can see an exhibit explaining the history of Vyšehrad and Prague’s other fortifications. Here you will also find the entrance to the Casemates (adult/child 30/20Kč), a system of vaulted brick tunnels beneath the ramparts. The largest of these is the barrel-vaulted Gorlice Hall, which served as an air-raid shelter and potato store during WWII. It now houses six of the original baroque statues from Charles Bridge, including St Ludmila with the Young St Wenceslas by Matthias Braun (the other originals are in the Lapidárium), as well as temporary art exhibitions in summer. The Casemates ticket also gives admission to the Gothic Cellar.
