The Benedictine monastery of Reichenau on the same-name island is protected by UNESCO and is directly related to the Slavic culture. At the end of the IX century one of the creators of the alphabet, expelled from Moravia St. Methodius stayed here. In the Middle Ages, a "Bavarian ethnographer" – a catalog of ethnonyms of Eastern and Central Europe- was created here, in which Russia is also mentioned. The monastery became famous also for its school of book-miniature and because within its walls the crown of Charlemagne was created, which now kept in Vienna. Only millennial frescoes of the church of St. George from the former splendor of the monastery have survived to this day. Here you can also take a look at the restored apothecary garden of the IX century.
