Late Baroque basilica in Brevnov 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 Brevnov monastery, a place of lively spiritual tradition lasting for more than 1000 years.
Brevnov 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 Krystof 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.
