Slavonic Emmaus Monastery

The Slavonic Monastery for Benedictine monks, also known as the Emmaus Monastery, was founded by Bohemian king and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV. in 1347. The monks were to pray eternally for the salvation of the souls of deceased Bohemian kings as well as their successors. The idea behind this foundation was continuation of the Old Church Slavonic tradition of Great Moravia. You will learn about the daily life of a monk in the 14th centrury – how many times did he eat, pray and what was the punishment for disobedience?

Together we will visit the gothic chapter hall with cloister, baroque refectory, church and the Imperial chapel. In the cloister you will be able to admire the monumental cycle of wall paintings depicting the history of salvation from the fall of angels to the descent of the Holy spirit. As a cherry on top we are allowed to climb up so we can enjoy breathtaking view from a roof terrace.

Admission to the Monastery is not included: Full 60 CZK ; Students/Senior over 65 years 40 CZK; children under 6 years free
