“Great beer and beautiful views”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Walking the grounds of the Strahov monastary is very relaxing. You can walk all the way to the Petrin hill and tower if you have the energy. When you finish wandering, stop at the brewery for an excellent Czech beer. Then walk down the hill into the lesser town portion of Prague and across the Charles bridge.

“beautiful library”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This monastery is located on a hill, very close to the Prague castle. It has a really beautiful library, with amazing paintings on the ceilings, but one cannot enter the rooms, just admire them from the doorway. There is a small shop in the place, with good souvenirs to take home.

“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.
