The Emmaus Monastery, also known as the Slovenian Monastery, is located in Nove Mesto.
The founder of the monastery was Charles the Fourth, who ordered to build for the order of Benedictine monks own monastery. Construction began in September 1347. Initially, the monastery was Catholic, but the services in it were carried out by Croatian monks in Church Slavonic, since the monks were faithful to the Glagolic tradition.
During the Second World War, the monastery was badly damaged by bombing, but soon it was restored.
The preserved mosaics and fresco paintings are interesting in the interior of the monastery. The Church of the Virgin Mary is also interesting. The Nazi army destroyed the old roof of the church, and therefore a reinforced concrete roof was built, created in the form of intersecting peak-sails
