Late Baroque basilica in Břevnov Monastery, the oldest monastery in Bohemia

Surrender to the beauty of unique contrast between nobility of St. Margaret Church and tranquility of monastery gardens. We highly recommend concerts in Břevnov monastery, a place of lively spiritual tradition lasting for more than 1000 years.

Břevnov Benedictine monastery celebrated a millenium since its foundation in 1993 and it is the oldest monastery in Bohemia. The monastery was reconstructed in the 18th century by leading artists of the era – architects Kryštof and Kilian Ignac Dientzenhofers, painters Peter Brandl and Jan Jakob Stevens. As a result, we can now admire this artistically valuable complex of Baroque buildings, basilica and gardens.

In frequent concerts you can admire the sound of a rare Baroque organ from 1725. The cabinet was probably designed by Kilian Ignac Dientzenhofer as his first organ cabinet. It has three manuals and 34 registers.

How to get there:

  • Walking distance from Prague Ticket Office - Via Musica shop on Old Town Square:
    over 60 minutes, we suggest to use public transport
  • Accessibility by Prague public transport:
    trams Nos. 22, 25 - Břevnovský klášter stop (cca 20 min from the center)
  • Nearest car parking:
