Strahov Monastery and Baroque pilgrimage place Loreto

We will tour the Left Bank of the river Vltava, e.g. Lesser Town and Hradčany (castle town), its upper part. After taking tram Nr. 22 we will be heading to the complex of Strahov monastery, after the visit of the libraries the tour will continue in Loreto.

The complex of Strahov monastery came to its origin during the first half of the 12th century in western edge of developing city of Prague, that time out of city walls. Since its foundation in 1143 it was monastic residence of Prague Premonstratensians. This order was founded by St. Norbert, who is buried here in the church of the Assumptions of our Lady since 1626. The Royal Canonry is an integral part of the Roman Catholic Church. The highlight of the monastery are two library halls - the Theological (2nd half of 17th century) and Philosophical Halls (1780ies). During the tour we can see also the church, where Mozart played the organ in the year 1787. Suggested places: do you know what means “refectory, dormitory”, how looks the courtyard of paradise? The answers you can find in Romanesque spaces from 13th century.

Loreto

Prague Loreto was inspired by its Italian predecessor built near by Ancona in the 12th century. The construction of Prague Loreto took about 130 years on the turn of 17th and 18th centuries. The complex originated as a consequence of counter-reformation and ranks to the gems of Bohemian Baroque. The highlights to be visited are Holy House of Our Lady as the copy of original Italian Holy House of Virgin Mary, the rococo church of Nativity of our Lord; Loreto treasure with religious precious objects, the most significant of which is the diamond monstrance (ostensorio). Every hour we also can hear 17th century carillon with 27 bells.
