The Strahov area is one of Prague’s most interesting places due to its historical importance, size and present mission. After the Westphalian Peace the monastery’s book collections were so big that in 1671 a new library, so-called Theological hall, had to be built. The new library building the Philosophical Hall is remarkable from the architectural point of view as well. Since 1953 the Monument of National Literature has formed as a part of the Pramonstratensian Strahov Monastery. Strahov Library contains over 900 thousand volumes and 300 thousand works of expressive art. The oldest manuscript is a summary of the Gospels which dates back to the 10th century. The collection is extremely valuable not only in monetary figures but in historical significance as well.
