The New Generation Museum in the Zdar estate

Let us take you for a walk through eight centuries of history in the grounds of the former Cistercian monastery and current estate. The monastery’s history began to be written as far back as the mid-1200 when Cistercian monks founded a monastery in the deep woods of Žďár. New trends and dynamic changes occurred in the 18th century under the influence of Abbot Vejmluva who – jointly with the builder Jan Blažej Santini-Aichel – brought new life to the site. At the Abbot’s incentive, Santini built his masterwork – the Pilgrimage Church of St. John of Nepomuk at Zelená Hora, one of the UNESCO’s official heritage sites today. During the reforms under Joseph II, in 1784, the monastery was closed and gradually transformed into current estate. In the 1990’s, the Zdar estate was restituted by the Kinský family. The tour now continues with new exhibits that combine immersive elements and experience with exhibits borrowed from prominent Czech institutions. Experience the unique atmosphere of history, life, creativity, and beautiful nature of Žďár.

The estate area offers all-day experience that can be started in the New generation museum which will give you clues to discover the entire complex! Take a guided tour Following Santini’s Footprints which take you to the most interesting interiors and exteriors of the former monastery, today's estate where Santini left some marks himself, permanent exhibition of Baroque art from the collections of the National Gallery in Prague, nature trails around the estate ponds, café or gift shop.
