Premonstratensian Monastery in Želiv

Želiv – The Premonstratensian Monastery with the Church of the Nativity of Our Lady

The monastery was established in 1139. It was first inhabited by Benedictines from the nearby abbey in Sázava,
then later by the community of Premonstratensians from Steinfeld in the Rhineland. Over its history it underwent a number of changes. After many fires, it was restored several times – most notably in 1713–1720 in the spirit of the Baroque Gothic by the architect Jan Santini Aichel. During the communist totalitarian period of the second half of the 20th century, the monastery became an internment camp for spiritual leaders. It lies in the midst of nature in the scenic Vysočina region and can be reached via a variety of hiking and cycling trails.
