A display of spiritual and secular power, the site’s fame and the virtues of its patrons are expressed through the monastery design. The extent of building activity, patronage and political influence rivalled those of the bishop, and surpassed those of the aristocracy. Leading Viennese and Olomouc artists joined forces in the interior decoration. The main subjects include allegories of the virtues and an apotheosis of the founder of the Premonstratensian order. The canonry complex also comprises farmyards, residences and the Sv. Kopecek pilgrimage site.
