We visited the Monastery as part of a Context Travel walking tour. It was one of the stops along the way and was it worth it. It had the most fantastic (2) libraries I seen in sometime. You can't go in unless you make prior...More

This old monastery inhabits an amazing and very impressive library in an even more amazing and beautiful environment. There is a separate fee for making photo's, but nothing that will really set you back.

A beautiful walk up the hill from the Castle to this monastery, with panoramic views over the city. Library is gorgeous - a real treat. We were lucky enough to visit when a music recital was playing, cherry on top. Entry is a little pricey...More

If you are a fan of libraries, you just can’t miss Strahov. There are three types of tickets: (1) just see, (2) see and take photos and (3) guided tour. The latter is the only one you actually enter the library and it is on...More

The Strahov Monastery is a bit of a hike up from the Charles Bridge, but well worth it for the incredible views of the city. We were a little disappointed with the different attractions within the monastery (library, museum, etc.), which all required a ~100kr...More

It seemed a little ridiculous that we had to pay to take pictures and I think that it's more of a tourist trap than anything. As others mentioned, you don't have access to the library. Also bring change- we forgot there was an entrance fee...More

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if
you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched
from the west to the north, provide spectacular views
of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone
streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green
gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
