Strahov Monastery

Prague, Czech Republic
4.1 / 10
The cloister was built for the monastic order of Premonstrants in the XII century. It is located close enough to the Prague Castle, so it could not avoid damage during the Hussite wars, the storming of the fortress during the Thirty Years War and other battles. There is a large library on the territory of the monastery, where 2.5 thousand ancient manuscripts are stored, including the Strahov Gospel of the 9th century.

Is it worth the money? Yes and no. The library is very small and limited to one corridor. You won't see much. The gallery, on the other hand, has much.. Read more »
