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.

The story behind St. Agnes is quite tragic although I don't believe in the paranormal side of it. The ghost night tour stops here.

After a very crowded visit to the Jewish Quarter synagogues and cemetery, we decided to stop at St. Agnes Convent as we had heard it had an excellent collection of medieval art. We were not disappointed. If you are at all interested in art, a visit should be on your not-to-be-missed list. The collection is spectacular. The architecture of the... More

People who fail to include this part of the National Gallery in their visit will fail to appreciate the importance of Prague as an artistic centre in the fourteenth and fifteenth century. According to the curators, many of the works shown here belong to the so-called International Style, and within that are midpoint between Italy and northwestern Europe because they... More

If religious art is what you're looking for, this is the place. The collection is extensive and outstanding. But that's about it: the chapels are completely barren and there's no sense of what the convent must have looked like in its heyday. So go for the art but if you're looking for more you'll be disappointed.
