About 40 km south of the regional town of Karlovy Vary is the picturesque town of Teplá. The town is dominated by the Baroque church of St. Jilja. Near the church there is a town hall and a Renaissance building with a mansard roof, where the Teplá Municipal Office is located today. Another interesting monument is the octagonal Baroque Chapel of the Holy Trinity.
A building that is definitely worth a visit is the Premonstratensian monastery in Teplá, which was founded by the Czech Grand Duke Hroznata, whose remains are kept in the north chapel of the monastery church. The monastery grounds are dominated by the Romanesque-Gothic building of the Church of the Annunciation of the Lord, dating from 1193-1232. The church holds regular services and is open to tourists for tours. In addition to the beautiful Baroque interiors, you can also see the monastery park built in English style at the beginning of the 20th century. On the way through the park you can come across the Lourdes Cave or the modern Stations of the Cross by the sculptor V. Gatařík. The cultural and educational centre of the Hroznata Academy offers tourists various tours in the historical premises of the monastery, thanks to which you can learn interesting facts about the local life.
