They been there:

To the west of the regional city of Pilsen, just off the D5 motorway, you will come across the interesting Kladruby Monastery and the impressive Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, St. Wolfgang and St. Benedict. The monastery can be visited within the commented circuits. You can also take a short walk along the church and enjoy this impressive building

Entrance to the monastery complex

There is a free car park directly opposite the monastery. From here you can also go to the Museum of the Czechoslovak Fortifications Kladruby, which takes care of two light fortifications. It can be seen from the parking lot that there is still a lot to renovate.

Panorama of Kladruby monastery

After passing the entrance gate, the panorama of the monastery will open up to you. On the positive side, part of the monastery has already been renovated, but it will definitely be a long time before it is perfect.

Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary

The church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary standing next to the monastery in the Baroque Gothic style is a significantly more interesting and impressive building.

Reconstruction according to Jan Blažej Santini-Aichl

No wonder, because the original church was rebuilt according to the plans of the famous architect Jan Blažej Santini-Aichl
