- The main attraction to Zdar nad Sazavou is the Pilgrimage Church of St. John of Nepomuk at Zelena Hora (Green Hill) about 3km outside the center of city. This is one of the most important works of the architect Jan Santini and as such has been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The church is on a hill which can be climbed by the recently renovated stairs. The church is surrounded by an exterior wall which forms an internal sort of cloister which contains a grave yard. The Church sits proudly in the middle, every aspect of the ensemble is planned to be significant to the story of Jan of Nepomuk who was martyred in Prague for not revelling royal secrets. Inside the chiurch a cd can be played in several different European languages explaining the main points of the church.
- An impressive Monastry at the base of the hill was also designed by Santini
