Fondest memory: Town
The town of Klášterec nad Ohrí is located on the left-bank of the River Ohre on the boundary of the Krušné and Doupovské Mountains, 330 metres above sea level. The town is currently home to 16 thousand inhabitants.The origin and the name Klášterec are connected to The Blank Monks' Order from Postoloprty, who founded there a small monastery (claustrellum) in the 12th century.
On June 2, 1623 Kryštof Šimon of Thun bought the Klášterec estate. The Thun family entered the town history in a very significant way. Namely the chateau is a result of their activities. Today, it is newly reconstructed and you can find a museum of Bohemian porcelain there. A nine-hectare. English park with many dendrologically unique species spreads out in the neighbourhood of the chateau. A part of the park is also formed by Salla Terrena and by a lot of significant sculptures by an outstanding 17th century sculptor J. Brokoff. The Trinity Church built according to Lurago’s designs by architect Rossi de Luca is a supreme Baroque building that should not be missed.
