To the southeast of the center of Příbram you will find the most important Marian pilgrimage site in Bohemia – the Holy Mountain. The center of the whole area is the beautiful Basilica of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. Of great interest are the Holy Mountain Stairs connecting the center of Příbram with the top of the mountain

Entrance to the Svatohorské stairs

A trip to the Holy Mountain cannot be started better than climbing the Svatohorské Stairs. The entrance is relatively inconspicuous at the end of V Brance alley

Mysterious Svatohorské stairs

Svatohorské stairs is one of the attractions of this trip – a 500 meter long covered corridor with 343 steps. If you go here alone, it has a pretty scary atmosphere. About halfway through, the only way to leave the stairs

Pilsen Chapel

Just before the end of the stairs is another opportunity to get in and out and go straight to the chapel. In each of the corners of this pavilion you will find an interesting chapel. The first one you come across is the Chapel of St. Mary Magdalene or also the Pilsen Chapel. This looks like a cave

Side entrance

If you proceed from the chapel along the wall, you will soon come to a side entrance to the center of the complex.

Marian Well

However, before you enter, it is better to walk a few tens of meters to Mariánská studánka, or you can bypass the entire Stations of the Cross in its vicinity

Basilica of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary

When you enter the complex (entrance fee is not paid here) you will certainly be captivated by the small but really beautiful Basilica of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary standing right in the middle

Baroque interior of the Holy Mountain

The interior is really incredibly decorated – sculptures, paintings, frescoes, just everything down to the smallest detail. Those who like the Baroque style will definitely enjoy it here
