“Magnificent Libraries if you could see them properly”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

I have given this review only three stars because you are told that you will see the magnificent libraries when you buy the ticket but they do not make it at all obvious that you will be restricted to standing in the doorway peering in and not allowed to enter the libraries. I can understand the reason for this but they should be upfront about this when selling the tickets as it is a disappointment.

“Amazing libraries!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is not something you can see every day. So much knowledge and so much beauty in just two rooms. Plus the brewery outside is very good!

“Worth a visit if you appreciate good beer/real ale”
Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

The light IPA is excellent, lovely views from the surrounding area too as it overlooks Prague. You can walk to the Petrin Tower(mini Eiffel tower) from here as well, only 10/15 walk.

“best start for a walk down into the centre”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Strahov monastery is located on a hill overlooking the city centre of Praha and Hradcany.
You best take the tram winding up its way and get off at Strahov.
Then have a look into the monastery grounds - we did not pay to get inside. There's supposed to be a very large and old library inside.
Then enjoy the beautiful view of the whole city and its bridges.
Then you can walk down whatever way and stop for all the sights.

“A must visit”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

The monastery is a must visit whilst in Prague. The library is just astounding. Have beer at the brewery while there. Only a short walk to the Castle.
