  • Go here if you want a break from the crowded sights in Prague. Beautiful monastery! Occupies a very expansive space, very quiet and peaceful. We went here at the height of summer, and there were only less than 15 people roaming the area. I prefer this to Strahov Monastery.
  • Really good service and good food. The food is traditional, but simple. However, the excellent service, comfortable atmosphere and good prices that is definitely somewhere out of normal stamping ground of tourists means I would recommend this to someone looking for a break from the tourist traps of central Prague. Would visit again!
  • Wonderful stop off the beaten track away from the high tourist areas of Prague. A shirt 20 min walk from the metro station.
  • Perfect place with nice park and brewery, which produce one of the best beer in Czech Republic
  • The monastery was founded in 993 Bishop St. Vojtěch (d. 997) and the Prince Boleslav II. Its owner virtuous (d. 999). It was the first monastery in the Czech territory at all. In 11. century was Abbot Menharda built in Czechoslovakia the first stone church. Its crypt beneath the Basilica today maintain to this day. Later, he was on the same spot where stood the older Romanesque church, built more spacious Church of Gothic. Břevnov monastery suffered great damage during the Hussite wars. Restoration and reconstruction of the Baroque has passed after the thirty years ' war under Abbot Thomas Set (d. 1700), and then especially in the first half of the 18. century under Abbot Otmar Mary (d. 1738). He hired a leading builders and artists of the period, such as Christopher and Walter Ignatius Dientzenhoferovi, Petr Brandl, Karel Josef Hiernle and more. Their work was artistically valuable then and still admired the building complex with a garden. An ambitious plan to establish in a converted Břevnov in 18. century aristocratic Academy failed. The eventful history of the monastery in the twentieth century. In 1950 he was the břevnov monastery as well as the other monasteries of the Communist Government sequestrated. The Abbot Anastasius Belt († 1999) was unjustly accused and spent 50. years in prisons. The monastery fell into ruin considerably during the Communist era. The restored Benedictine community with the help of the State and foreign monasteries managed to repair the monastery buildings and with dignity to celebrate 1000 years of the monastery in 1993 — břevnovské Abbey was on that occasion, the Pope Blessed with the honorary title of» arciopatství «.» Pope John Paul II. then in 1997, the břevnovské monks during his visit in the Czech Republic also personally visited. In 1999, after the death of Anastáze Opasek, led the monastery as the prior-Prokop Siostrzonek administrator. In recent years, continues to repair the whole complex and the life of the monastery of vrůstá in the life of Prague, built at the beginning of the 21st. of the century. For visitors is made available to the Baroque Basilica. Margaret, Romanesque crypt from 11. century and Baroque prelate with the Tereziánským Hall. The tour takes about 90 minutes.
