The former abbey in Zlatá Koruna is the best preserved Cistercian monastery in Bohemia. The area of the monastery was in 1995 announced as the national cultural treasure.
According to the Baroque monastery chroniclers Přemysl Otakar II founded Zlatá Koruna to thank God for blessing him in his victory over the much stronger Hungarian king Béla IV in the battle of Kressenbrunn. Although some fragmentary news taken from the sources of that time as well as from later ones correspond with this version, it was not the main reason why the monastery was founded.

The Cistercians of the most significant Austrian abbey in Heiligenkreutz were called by Přemysl Otakar II to the Zlatá Koruna monastery in 1263 for his support against power of the Witigonen who built a powerful dominion in South Bohemia.

Accessibility by road:
The Zlatá Koruna monastery is located about 8 km to the north of Český Krumlov, in the direction of České Budějovice.
