“Former monastery of the Friar Servants of Mary”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

In czech: Klášter Božího Milosrdenství. 1679-1686, former Monastery of St. Peter and Paul (Friar Servants of Mary) by noble family Buquoy. The order had 8 monastery branches in CZ, but due to reforms by emperor Joseph II six of those were abrogated, Nové Hrady and Králiky remained, but 1883 Králiky closed due to a lack of friars. 1886 Radical reform, monastery incorporated into province Tyrol. WWII only two Czech friars remained, monastery served as barrack for frontier police. 1987 They left, complex dilapidated. In 1990, after fall of iron curtain, friars were sent in again. With help volunteers the monastery was restored again.
