Příbram is a former mining town, where, from the Middle Ages, mined, among others, silver. Currently, it is known primarily for one of the most important sanctuaries in the Czech Republic, located on the Holy Mountain.
In the panorama of Příbram, the most visible element is the early-Baroque church and monastery complex on the Holy Mountain above the Old Town. It consists of the Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the surrounding residential and farm buildings. The Gothic statue of the Mother of God is venerated here, which, according to tradition, is the source of numerous graces. Currently, it is one of the largest and most important pilgrimage sites in the Czech Republic, visited every year by thousands of pilgrims and tourists.
Compared to the sanctuary, the remaining monuments of Příbram are not that monumental. The old town has been preserved here with buildings dating mainly from the 17th and 18th centuries, as well as the 19th century representative buildings of the city. An interesting attraction of Příbram are buildings that testify to the industrial history of the city, including the buildings of the former St. Wojciech.
