Chateau Žďár nad Sázavou

In the beginning a group of Cistercian monks built a log cabin in the wild forest of the Sázava river in the 13th century and step by step with their bare hands they built their humble monastery.

Five centuries later, the magnifi cent Baroque reconstruction of the monastery ranked among the most expensive projects of those days. The triumph of the thirty year construction eff ort was celebrated in 1735, and only two years later the monastery burned down and Vejmluva himself died in a year. At the end of the century the monastery was abolished by the Emperor Joseph II and it was changed into an economic centre and a chateau.
