Zdar : Opening of a new museum in the near future

The Kinsky family contacted other local owners (The Catholic Church, owner of the Abbey Basilica and the Zelena Hora Chapel, amongst others) and authorities to interest and involve them in a joint project for the reconstruction and revitalization of the entire complex. An Interpretation Center is now under construction within the original brewery. It will present the two golden ages of the monastery: its foundation in the XIIIth century, and its complete baroque era renovation, after a long period of historical mishaps, thus steeping the visitors in the historical context, and the spiritual and artistic aspirations and motivations of the times. The new museum will be part of the overall Cultural Exchange project, run by a non-profit cultural association, Se.S.TA. It is co-financed by its sponsors and the European Regional Development Plan. It is to be open to the public from August 2015. www.zamekzdar.cz
