Medieval Strahov Monastery. Prague. Czech Republic. HD video.
In this video we visit the Theological and Philosophical Halls, Cabinets of Curiosities and Connecting Passages of the medieval Strahov Monastery.
The Royal Canonry of Premonstratensians at Strahov is one of the oldest monasteries of the Premonstratensian Order in the world. It has been a working monastery practically ever since it was founded in 1143. Fire, the Hussite Wars, religious wars, and the Communists all failed to shut down this institution.

Strahov Monastery and Brewery (Klášterní pivovar Strahov) - IPA & Christmas Doppelbock Beer
Welcome to another international edition of the tour everyone! This time we're in Prague again, the capital of the Czech Republic, and we are on the Lesser Town (Mala Strana) side, way up in the hills at Strahov Monastery! This particular monastery has a fantastic brewery right at it as well, where they brew their own beer! This time we try out the India Pale Ale (IPA) and the Christmas Doppelbock, a seasonal that had just come out at this time. Enjoy!
India Pale Ale - IPA
alcohol: 6,3% vol.
ingredients: barley malt, hops, water, brewery yeast
We introduce a new special guest in our brewery. It is India Pale Ale (IPA) and its history comes from Great Britain. IPAs was brewed for long distance transports to India and with its high bitterness was inspiration for European brewmasters to create bitter lagers. Our IPA is top-fermented beer brewed from Czech ingredientes and two kinds of American hops (Amarillo and Cascade). It combines full malt body with high hop bitterness and hoppy aroma. All the year round.
from: December 5th
Special semi-dark lager, non-filtered
ingredients: Barley malt, adjusted hop, water, yeasts
The strongest beer from our collection. Whole malt bottom fermented beer. The flavor shows the used Czech, Munich, caramel and carapils malt. Its strength – bodiness is balanced with a respectable load of hops. Perfect harmony. Enjoy the best from our fields and hops-gardens in the Christmas time. In the world, it belongs in the Doppelbock category.

Visit Prague 5 - Strahov Library (Strahovská Knihovna)
Visit Prague 5: Strahov Library (Strahovská Knihovna). In this film, we leave Prague Castle behind and head further uphill to the Strahov Monastery to see the famous Strahov Library with its extensive collection of old manuscripts and books - and its richly decorated interior.
This is a Short from my Prague mini-documentary, Visit Prague. This series of 8 short videos covers what to see, recommendations for where to go, where to eat and drink and how to get there and get around if you have just a few days to tour the Czech capital as a tourist on a short visit.
From the narration:
After leaving the Prague Castle complex, we headed up Úvoz Street to the Strahov Monastery.
By the way, if you’ve had enough of hills, there’s a tram route nearby!
The monastery was founded in the 12th century and our aim was to buy tickets and see the famous Strahov Library there.
The library houses thousands of old prints and books, including one from the 9th century and many more from the 17th and 18th centuries.
There are two splendidly decorated halls in the library.
The baroque 17th century Theological Hall contains about 18,000 theological books. The room has an ornate stucco ceiling and the frescoes date back to the 18th century.
The 18th century Philosophical Hall was constructed with walnut and contains medical, mathematical geographical and other books.
The Journey of Mankind to Wisdom was painted on the ceiling in 1794.
In the corridor between the two halls there are rare books or facsimiles on display.
There are also science collections, for example the specimens in this display cabinet.
It’s worth noting that some historic sites in Prague, including the cathedral and this library, charge a fee for taking photos.
