Elaborate paintings peer down from the ceiling. Baroque excesses are sculpted across the walls. Polished wood impresses and the bookshelves extend on and on.
In Strahov Monastery there are too many places to look, too many details to discover. Just wait until you see the collection of globes in the historical halls of Strahov Library – a true traveler’s delight!
Yet all this magnificence can be lost, especially at the height of Prague’s tourist season. So explore this Baroque masterpiece after hours, on your own, complemented by spiritual tales coming from your guide.
This is one of the country’s oldest monasteries and remains a home to monks. And to experience the Premonstratensian spirituality is another highlight.
