In his renovation of the monastery complex Plečnik employed a drawing technique typical of the Renaissance, adorning the walls with bas-relief figurines that originate from Czech medieval art. All of these special elements of his renovation are most distinctive in the Grand Foyer, where Plečnik had envisioned an open-air theatre. The idyllic pergola along the monastery wall is supported by columns from the Ducal Court, with the walls showcasing various historical sculptures and portals.
