Strahov Monastery, Prague Reviews
Strahov monastery houses a very famous photo opportunity of a beautiful old library. You can’t enter without a tour guide but as an individual you can still poke your head in and capture that iconic image. Don’t miss the on display illuminated manuscripts. You have to pay to enter, pay more to take pictures and pay a little bit more to take videos.
We walked up the hill and it's nest if you are reasonably fit - with young children far better to take a tram or transport. Restaurant: Food was average - an egg covered in loads and loads of Hollandaise sauce some asparagus and potatoes - which tasted fine but heavy for a veggie option; and beer was not cold on a 35 degree day - so couldn't drink it. Monastery: The monastery was peaceful - the gallery had one or two interesting religious pictures - and was relaxing. It was worth a visit but not amazing.
Pretty rubbish experience. The ticket office does not accept cash. You cannot enter the rooms. The exhibits you can see are dried out fish and sharks. They charge extra for photos. Do not believe the photos they show as you cannot get access to that areas.
We really liked this place. We ate at the restaurant outside the main area by the tennis court and the food was wonderful. We tried the beer and it was very good too. The grounds a very large and there's a lot to see. The picture gallery owns over 1,500 items and there's a nice selection on display. You also get to see several of the rooms that are decorated with lovely frescos. Of course there is a special display for Saint Norbert.
Not allowed into the library itself but if not too crowded you get a good view from the door and it actually adds to the experience a bit that there are no visitors standing inside. Also some of the texts (and they are genuinely ancient: approaching 700 years in some cases) are on display outside. Cash only as of August 2018
