Long Description:

Reborn from ruins, it is the highlight of Margaret' Garden (Markétské zahrada) in Brevnov Benedictine Archabbey (Benediktinské arciopatství Brevnov), recently reconstructed beautiful Baroque orangery.

The orangery was designed by one of the most influential architects of Baroque era in the Central Europe - Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer. This interesting Baroque structure, constructed in the first decades of the 18th century, was after WWII abandoned and practically delapidated. Fortunately, thanks to the recent sensitive reconstruction, this jewel of garden architecture is again the adorment of Brevnov Benedictine Archabbey complex. The Orangery serves nowadays primarily as the site for cultural events and as an art gallery.
