Strahov Monastery Library

Recommendation by Lemi

You’ll find a more intimate experience at the nearby Strahov Monastery Library. Book a private guided tour in advance and ask if they can take you into the library, else you’ll only be peeking from the doorway. Strahov Monastery Library’s two halls inspire many photo opportunities. Both have painted fresco ceilings, but the Theological Hall frames each subject with Baroque ornaments. On the other hand, the Philosophical Hall’s vaulting is an uninterrupted painting of scholars and divine figures in a tableau named “Mankind’s Quest for True Wisdom.” The books may be far from reach, but the scenes painted above tell their own story.
