A unique copy of the Turin Shroud is certainly the most valuable relic of the Broumov Monastery. It was found in the monastic church of st. Adalbert in 1999 above the chapel of The Holy Cross hidden in a wooden box with an original letter certifying its origin back to 1651. It is a length of linen cloth bearing the image of a man - there is no consensus yet on how the image was created but it is believed to be the burial shroud of Jesus of Nazareth. The original shroud is kept in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, northern Italy. There are around forty copies of the Turin Shroud all around the world, but this one is the only one northerly of the Alps.

The exposition of the copy of the Turin Shroud together with precious liturgical vestments can be seen in the monastery refectory as a part of the guided tour.
