About the Project

The Capuchin monastery is situated in Opočno town and is owned by The Regional Authority of Hradec Králové region. It has been abandoned and unused since 2007. According to a public opinion survey, local people often have no idea about its existence, even though it is located in the town centre. The reason is because the whole monastery area has been hidden behind high stone walls and closed gate for several years.

The project Community garden of Capuchin monastery in Opočno town focuses on partial revitalization of the monastery garden and will lead to the opening of this long-term closed monument and its innovative use according to the needs of the local community.
