This was a wonderfully staffed and welcoming place. The food was delicious and portions were great for the price. However the star of the show was the in house brewed beer. We tired the Amber, Dark Lager and the seasonal Brown Ale, each as wonderful as the last. If you're up at the Prague Castle I definitely recommend making this one of your stops.
We walk only outside of the place, but it is very nice. We like the view very much. Try the monastery bear, it is also nice. If you go to Petrin you could continue to the monastery. We mistakenly go down from the hill and have to walk up again.
The view is amazing from here. Disappointed that I couldn’t actually enter the library and the monastery was a bit weird about people taking photos. On a nice day be sure to enjoy the view and a beer outside.
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.
Very beautiful collection of books and artifacts from throughout history, a warning though - entry is 120kc and if you want to take photos it's 50kc more. The permitted area permitted to ticketholders is also rather small, but this is well worth the one time visit.
