Books and Beer in Prague

Prague 25

A short walk from Schwartzenberg Palace is the Strahov Monastery. While it’s still an operating basilica, the real attractions here are more earthly—books and beer. The gawk-worthy Theological Library dates from the 17th century and contains more than 200,000 volumes housed in an elaborately stuccoed and ceilinged room.

Check opening times—like many Prague Castle attractions, the Theological Library is closed from 11:45am–1pm.

Eat

Strahov Monastic Brewery serves simple Czech fare and, according to beer snobs, a heavenly brew. Take a seat on the patio or in the newly renovated restaurant.

Shop

The Library gift shop has lovely crystal paperweights and fine stationery to take home.
