Near the battlefield of Austerlitz and the very beautiful chapel Saint Jean de Népomucène (UNESCO world heritage)
Several museums (Works, sculptures and baroque paintings) of the Czech national collections) or exhibitions very interesting.
Opening very soon a museum on the Baroque and the Cistercians at the origin of developement of the area of Zdar in 13 ème century.
An opportunity to discover this place or to rediscover it.
A part of the eternal European heart and of its future via Culture and exchanges beats in this place
To be absolutely seen soon

We were in Zdar nod Sazavou to visit the Santini masterpiece - the church at Zelany Hora. We stayed in the old monastery that has been converted into a hotel. Our rooms were in the tower. The staff was excellent and the rooms were very nice. I do not recommend staying in the tower if you have a mobility problem. Access is by spiral staircase with a rope for a hand rail. The grounds around the facility are very pleasant. It was a good experience.

Modern exhibition for 21th Century visitors. Minimalist designed show-cases, video projections, full interactive exhibition - e.i. try to make a book on a screen from raw materials (leather - goat, ink - oak ball, quill - goose) it's real fun for children :) On ground floor there is a story of the Zdar monastery, 1st floor is a journey through the baroque epoque and its innovations and discoveries. Knowledge and facts are not so important, the exhibit affects the senses. Free audioguide available, not traditional - it's actually a child and an abbot dialogue. Worth the visit, 60 - 90 minutes approx.

You will also find explanations about the origin and architecture of St John's church located close to this place.

The great news is that the museum has Audio guides available in several languages and the place is fabulous for kids!

Enjoy :-)

The whole complex of the monastery is renovated with the respect to the historical meaning of the place. At the same time, you are shown this in modern and interactive way, which attracts as kids as adults.There are activities in the museum, tours in/out-side of the complex and pleasant coffee place where one can easily enjoy the whole day. Come especially for Modern Dance Festival KORESPONDANCE in July!

Americans visiting the area with Czech friends, we stopped to see the monastery museum after visiting the nearby shrine. The museum was interesting and the English language narration made understandable what we had seen earlier as well as the history of the monastery itself. The multi media presentation of historical objects, narration, and music with lights and videos were very educational and understandable. It was a very enjoyable afternoon.
