This complex was founded in 1140 and has gone through an architectural evolution over the years. There are two Baroque churches still standing, but most impressive is the monastery's library, with its vaulted celings and lavish ornamentation.

It's located in Hradcany, the residential area around the west gate of Prague Castle.

Address: Near Castle complex and hard to miss.
Directions: From Prague Castle: Hradcanske namesti, Loretanska street, Pohorelec.
