Nice quiet monastery
Jan 2020 • Family
The monastery is located somewhat far from the traditional hiking trails, so it is relatively uncrowded and you can admire the baroque buildings of the monastery and a small monastery courtyard. Nice quiet place.

Very nice grounds
Sep 2020 • Friends
Although we did not go inside, we did enjoy the well kept walkways through the monastery grounds on a beautiful cool and clear day. The city is not crowded at all due to the Covid 19 situation, making it the ideal tourist destination.

Very little to see
Sep 2018 • Solo
I would not spend money visiting this monastery again. There was a small art exhibit and a few hallways that were open, but most of the buildings were not available to see. The displays had to do not with the history of the monastery or what life was like there, but rather how it had been restored. Also, make sure you leave time before closing to see it. The site was supposed to close at 5pm and by 4:40 the docents were shooing me out so they could lock up on time and go home.

Well worth a visit
Jul 2018 • Family
If you are in this beautiful place go and see this place. You'll be glad you did. In fact, the town is not huge and you can visit everywhere on foot.

Very nice things on display, only the commentary is in Czech
Jun 2018 • Friends
The things and stories on display are really great, yet the text is in Czech only and one has to read English or German version in a small print, which - given the light conditions - isn't that easy.

Peaceful Garden
Aug 2017 • Couples
Very peaceful garden with large vegetable and flower patches, herb garden, fruit trees, and grapevines, with benches and views of St Vitus and the Castle tower.

Great Monastry
Jul 2017 • Couples
It was restored completely just two years ago. It is beutifully done, you can admire, the gothic ceilings, the beautiful frescos, in the church the barock altars.
This was a Monestry and Cloister together - at the beginning 12 monks and 12 nonns were in the complex.

well worth the visit
Jun 2017 • Solo
The renovated Minorite Monastery is well worth a visit. The ticket I got had two parts ... the monastery itself (and church) and an adjacent location with items from the collection and about the renovations. Paintings and statuary and frescoes are gorgeous, and nicely restored. Be aware of strict no photography policy in most of the facility. Gardens are pleasant, too, and free to enter.

A nice place to visit
Apr 2017 • Couples
It is at the edge of the town but will not take you long to walk there. The place is well-preserved and with a small exhibition.

Well-restored monastery
Apr 2017 • Couples
Before you go, read about the history of this monastery and the story of St Francis. Then view the informative photo montage (the ticket office will tell you where to find this free display) describing the restoration of this site, with plenty of English translation. It was an incredible effort. Now you're ready to buy a ticket for a self-guided tour of the inside of the monastery and its church. Don't expect a lot of English translation here; that's why you read about the place in advance. Instead look at the layers of frescoes, the professionally restored paintings, the art treasures which originated here or are on loan. I especially like the little chapel of the Black Madonna. After your tour you might wish to take coffee one of the quiet courtyards, or you might stroll through the garden. Be sure to check the schedule of events, because sometimes there's a concert in another courtyard.
