  • When you reach the beginning of the street Kanovnickoj (Kanovnická), we went to the main building on this street is very beautiful baroque Church of St. John of Nepomuk (Vojenský kostel sv.

The vault of the Church decorated with frescoes by Václav Vavrineka Rainer (Václava Vavřince Reinera), depict scenes from the life of the said Saint. After 55 years of age (in 1784) monastery was closed, and, as a consequence, its building was used not as intended (the barracks, the military Depot, etc.). From the 19th to the 20th century sacred buildings in the premises arranged services for the military.
