This is really a gallery that is set in what was once a Cloister. There Is a changing exhibition on the first floor and beautiful religious art work in the upstairs. It was warm the day we wnt but the upstairs is air conditioned and much easier to enjoy. The Cloister itself is very interesting.

I visited this on a very wet and miserable day in Prague, spirits were low. This gallery was a quietly stunning experience and was beyond expectations. My favourite type of art is Florentine and Sienese 14c to 15c paintings little did I know that the similar works from the Bohemian areas in this gallery were their equal in quality many... More

The permanent exhibit is stunning. The medieval Madonnas have a really modern abstract quality and some amazing colours that must be seen live. The current temp exhibit (Czech Symbolism) is also breathtaking, and has borrowed many works from the National gallery in Veletrzni Palac. Seeing Vachal, Bilek etc. live was a treat. The thing that makes the gallery special is... More

What a complete treat to visit this wonderful convent and collection of treasured Medieval pieces! You don't have to be an art historian to appreciate the works, and the displays alone are worth the price of admission. Imagine art from the 12th century mounted against heavily textured charcoal metal walls-- or floating on thick glass panels that project from the... More

This is actually part of the National Gallery, although geographically remote from the rest. It is where the Czech collection of medieval art is displayed and surely it is one of the finest such collections in the world. You will be stunned by the beauty of these pieces, especially those from the 14th century. The humanity in these paintings and... More

Although a little off the beaten track it is in fact only a short walk from the main town square and can be easily combined with a visit (I would suggest first) to the Jewish sites in the Josefov District. The collection is superb, particularly the earlier exhibits from the period 1350-1400. There is usually a special exhibit of more... More

Fantastic place that houses the gothic part of the national gallery collection. Stunning works by gothic masters. In addition, the convent offers changing, well curated exhibitions. It is always worth a visit!!! This time we saw a wonderful selection from Czech Symbolism, it was a real visual treat!

Stunning national gallery collection of mainly bohemian art and sculpture, assembled from multiple churches and monasteries. Shows very well the artistic synthesis found in medieval and early renaissance Prague and surrounds. Some outstanding polychromed wooden sculptures.
