Overview

Founded in 993 CE by Saint Adalbert, this weathered monastery sits in a quiet, forested area on the edge of town, and is also the oldest in Bohemia. Today, it is still inhabited by monks. Just below the monastery are remnants of the original church, which during Communist times was a holding ground for suspicious-looking foreigners detained by the Ministry of Interior. A good way off the beaten tourist trail, the monastery still offers guided tours on Saturdays and Sundays, although these can also be arranged ahead of time during the week.
