I came to the convent after the group-herd activity of a tour (blessedly only a two hour tour) and relished immersion in the environment and the feeling of history (maybe herstory?) coming from it's pores as outside shifted from dusk to night. They were tapping their feet for me to leave.

First, make sure you have directions; this is not the easiest place to find - even when you are right around the corner. We circled it several times before finding the entrance - so it is easy to miss and not the kind of location you are liable to come across by accident. This is actually multiple attractions. It is...

The most important museum in Prague. DONT MISS THIS, even if you only see the first 4 rooms. The paintings 14th-15th century are unlike any others in the world. The National Gallery has wonderful Picasso, and Gauguin, Van Gogh, Klimt and don't miss that either but you can see those artists elsewhere whereas at the convent you can only see... More

The exhibit of medieval religious art is very interesting. The Convent itself was closed because of a change in exhibitions, but the ongoing religious art exhibit kept us engaged for about two hours. The evolution of the art work from the 14th through the 15th century seemed like a progression to modern art.

A huge collection of very old church art and statues We have never seen such a collection of artifacts dating back over 600 years and many in such lovely condition. A bit difficult to find but worth the time

This is a wonderful place to visit. We only saw the main permanent exhibit. A large set of various rooms within the working convent. The largest selection of Virgin Mary and Child statutes I have ever seen. Very well displayed and laid out. A very curious collection from various sites in the country. You really get to feel the artists... More

It's out of the town but well worth a trip on a hot day for the air conditioning alone. Wonderful exhibition and the best I have seen outside of the Louvre and Rijksmuseum collections. Thee convent is peaceful to walk around and the staff are very helpful

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
