Display photos

The churches, so called „Broumov church group“, were built on the territory of the monastery domain acc. to plans of Kryštof Dientzenhofer and his son Kilián Ignác from start of the 18th century. Certainly they can be rightly considered for the baroque pearls of the region and each of the churches is an architectonic gem. The theme of the construction was renovation of unsatisfactory system of wooden churches. All churches were built during relatively short time period, from 1709 to 1743. Initiator of construction of the churches was Abbot Otmar Zinke, representative of the Benedictine Břevnov - Broumov abbey. Due to his effort not only baroque churches were established, but also minor sacral monuments in the environs, such as crosses, plastics, figures, cross paths etc.

Following churches belong to the „Broumov church group": 

  • St. Prokop Church in Bezděkov
  • St. Mary Magdalene Church in Božanov
  • St. Wenceslas Church in Broumov
  • All Saint Church in Heřmánkovice
  • Mary the Virgin Chapel on Hvězda
  • St Barbora Church in Otovice
  • St Jacob the Major Church in Ruprechtice
  • St. Margarita Church in Šonov
  • St. Michael Church in Vernéřovice
  • St. Anne Church in Vižňov

Walk: 50 m from the hotel

The baroque gem in Broumov is significant architectonic and cultural complex. Significance of Broumov very increased during Husite wars. Regarding the fact that the Břevnov Monastery was burned off in 1420 by Husites, Abbot Nicolas II with several regular brothers resorted to Broumov. They brought many precious items, also largest manuscript book in the world, so called Codex gigas, which is however located from 1648 in Sweden as a war trophy. Movement of the abbots from Břevnov to Broumov had immense significance for cultural and economic development of the town and whole region. In the monastery refectory there is exhibited copy of so-called Shroud of Turin, which was found in 1999 in the monastery St. Vojtěch Church above the St. Cross Chapel. An authentic original document is attached to the Shroud, which proved that in 1651 the shroud was donated by Turin archbishop Julius Caesar Bergiria to the abbot at St. Nicolas in Prague Old Town, to future Prague archbishop Matoušov Ferdinand Sobek from Bílenberk.

Even today the purpose is not exactly known, possible building of Hitler general headquarters or manufacturing plant for secret weapons. Construction of the underground complex was launched in summer 1943 under supervision of group, which formerly constructed the Atlantic barrier. Prisoners from close concentration camp Gross-Rossen were misused for slave work on the complex. Although the complex was almost completed (incl. electric installations etc.), it was never used.
