Schodiště v Prelatuře

The former Cistercian monastery has been transformed into the current castle of the Kinský family, but traces of the monastery's past are still very visible and determine the overall impression of the large complex. The central building is the basilica of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, which was redesigned by the builder J. B. Santini. It is worth noting the ceiling fresco in the building of the prelature, which has been preserved unchanged.

It was so pleasant to listen to our guide – Eva. Her interpretation is perfect. The castle looks very nice. The tour Following Santini’s Footprints + Baroque Gallery lasted about 1.5 hours. Even though it was raining, we enjoyed it. I also recommend visiting Zelená hora and the cemetery near the castle grounds.
