Historical library

The library was built at the beginning of the 18. century from the initiative of the bishops of Hradec Králové. Thanks to them we can dive into the world of old prints and manuscripts.

There are 60 thousands volumes, most of them are old valuable prints from the time of Cyril and Methodius. The library is open not only for researchers, but also for the public. There are manuscripts, chronicles, religious texts, philosophical texts and other historical documents.
