Czechoslovak Hussite Church started building third Sázava church in the gauge against the bridge on the left bank of the river under the leadership of parson Jaroslav Bendl. It was causing a sort of displeasure by the Roman-Catholic believers. The building was managed to be finished in July 1941. The church was consecrated to Abbot Prokop.
The monastery was founded by Prince Ulrich and the hermit Procopius in 1023. It houses an exhibition called “Old-Slavic Sázava”. The tour includes the Baroque Refectory and the Chapter-house with murals dating back to the 14th century. You can visit the Baroque church dedicated to St. Procopius and see the underground crypt. There are uncovered foundations of the
Holy Cross Church from the 11th century in the northern monastery garden.
