Strahov Court

The first Premonstratensian monastery in Bohemia was built in the 1140’s in the site of an old guard place on a wooded highland near the road to Přemyslid castle. The originally Romanesque premises of the monastery were damaged several times by fire and battles; the today’s character is a result of Baroque reconstructions. The court is dominated by the Monastery, triple-naved Church of the Assumption of Our Lady, a Baroque building with a Romanesque core. Strahov garden lays out on the slope to Vltava, offering yet another beautiful view on Prague. The monastery belongs to the dominant features of Hradčany that stands out, especially when looking from the Old Town bank of Vltava. Royal Premonstratensian Canons in Strahov belong to the oldest, still existing monasteries of the Premonstratensian Order in the world.
