Prestigious Strahov Abbey (Strahovský kláster) has looked over the city of Prague since 1140 and its towers rising above the green hill of Petrín can be seen from afar. From the very beginning, Strahov played the role of a cultural hub, the reputation of which went beyond its borders. From its long history there remains today an architectural complex going from the Romanesque to the Age of Enlightenment. Its libraries and painting collections are among Prague's many treasures.
