  • Although the limelight was overshadowed by the synagogue's General Assembly Hall, Bilson was also the strongest Catholic position in Bohemia, and, to be sure, returned to the Catholic fold as a parish in the 1993 after the end of the Cold War. In addition to the parish Cathedral in the Republic Square, the best place to enjoy the Bohemia Catholic culture is the Franciscans Monastery, now the Museum of Religious Art. In addition to a large number of icons carved and glittering instruments, the biggest bright spot is the 15th century mural-not only the religion, the greater significance lies in the murals embodied in the medieval bohemian life scene. Another great place in the monastery is the library, built in 17th century, which can be compared to the famous Bragstrahov Convent Library, one of the oldest extant libraries in Bohemia, which once reached 4,000 volumes-but now there is only a fraction of that.
