Doksany Monastery and Chateau

The monastery in Doksany enjoyed its greatest expansion in the 13th and 14th centuries. During the Hussites and during the Thirty Years' War, it was looted. In the second half of the 17th century, it was generously rebuilt in the Baroque style.

After the abolition of the monastery (in 1782) by Emperor Joseph II. the building was used as a hospital or barracks. Later, after alterations to the manor house, the monastery acquired the character of a chateau. In the 1990s, nuns returned to Doksan. Probably the most impressive part of the Doksan monastery is the Romanesque crypt. Despite the modifications from the end of the 19th century, you will find yourself in the Romanesque environment of the 12th and 13th centuries. You can also see the monastery church of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary on the north side of the second courtyard. The monastery complex is surrounded on the south and west by Baroque gardens and an English park.
