Strahov Monastery

Theological Library : Strahov Monastery : Prague, CZ

A trip to Prague is incomplete if you skip the Strahov Monastery. The libraries are beautiful and worth the ticket price to see them. This was also the first building we visited where we had to pay a fee to be allowed to take photos! I guess this isn't uncommon in Prague, but it was a first (and wouldn't be the last) for me. I think it cost about $3, though, so I can't complain too loudly. Apparently, the monks of Strahov brew a very nice beer, too. At least, that's what Rick Steves claims and Rachel, Chris, and Maya seemed to agree. Sadly, the church was closed that day, so we didn't get to enjoy all of its Baroque beauty. To see a few more photos, go here.
