A stunning site in Prague and a location that is often overlooked by most itineraries of the city. The 12th-century monastery is nestled on a hill outside of the city near Petrin Hill and Prague castle. It's reached by crossing the Charles Bridge and following the street up the hill. Inside is a high-ceilinged Baroque church with stucco-paneled halls. Lining the walls of the Theological and Philosophical halls are countless volumes of leather-bound books and polished wooden bookshelves. Spaced throughout the rooms of the Strahov Library, and amongst the rare manuscripts and maps , are many old globes and other intricate statues. Top Tip: Visit the Strahov Monastery Brewery next door. A 17th-century brewery that serves outstanding beers and ales. Photo Credits: Hieu Vu Minh
