ZLATA KORUNA - MONASTERY - CZECH REPUBLIC
Zlata Koruna - Monastery Zlata Koruna (Golden Crown) belongs to the best preserved Cistercian monasteries in the Czech Republic. 10 km from Cesky Krumlov.

Premysl Otakar II - King of Bohemia - founded the monastery in 1263 as the expression of gratitude to the God, who enabled him to win the battle near Kressenbrunn over the stronger army of the Hungarian King. The name Zlata Koruna is derived from the thorn from the Jesus Christ’s crown. The King Premysl Otakar II received the thorn from the French King Louis IX and gave it to the monastery.

The monastery complex consists predominately of Gothic buildings with Baroque or Rococo adjustments. The architectural heart of the monastery is a three-nave basilica with a transverse nave. The convent with a cross corridor is attached to the church. On the northern side is the Chapel of the Guardian Angels from about 1370, the oldest preserved building of the monastery.
