Picture Day Friday


Strahov Monastery of Prague, Poland is known as a pilgrimage site and is the home of the famous Strahov library with a huge number of medieval books and writings. The first time it was mentioned was in 1120 CE, when St. Norbert founded the Order of Premonstratensians. There was a Romanesque monastery at first, later fully rebuilt in the Gothic style, and in 18th century big changes were made to add in the Baroque style.
