The Broumov monastery

National cultural monument

This benedictine abbey of St. Wenceslas is an imposant complex lying in Broumov- in a valley surrounded by Broumovsko walls and Javoří mountains near Polish borders. It was founded in 13th century by benedictine monks, the oldest monk order of western christendom, and rebuilt in 17th century to it´s modern baroque visage by Martino Allio from Löwenthal and the architects Christoph Dientzenhofer and his son Kilian Ignaz. The last named is also the author of inner decoration, realized by great artists of Prague´s baroque: Bernardo Spinetti, Jan Karel Kovář and Felix A. Scheffler. Among other, paintings from Peter Brandl were used for the decoration. The altary paintings in side chapels of the church were painted by V.V. Reiner. The monastery and the monastic garden were revitalised in 2014 and now they are open whole year, every day.

It is possible to visit the monastery as a part of a guided tour or during numerous cultural events.
