Informace

During the Hussite period and Thirty Years War the monastery was plundered. In the middle of the 17th century it was generously reconstructed to baroque style. After the inactivation by emperor Josef II. in 1782, the building was used as hospital and barracks. Later after the recontruction to rich mansion the monastery reshaped its features to a castle. In 90s of the 20th century nuns returned to Doksany. The most impressive part of Doksany’s monastery is a Romanic crypt. You can experience here the atmosphere of Romanic period of the 12th and the 13th century. You can also visit a monastery church Narození Panny Marie at the north side of the second courtyard.
