When reading about this, somehow I have found lots of reviews talking about great medieval art, but completely missed the fact that it is religious art, which is not exactly my type of attraction. So the collection was... quite a surprise. The cloister itself however is beautiful, I really enjoyed seeing it and reading the information panels about it's history.

Beautiful and extensive collection of medieval art. Of particular note are the impressive collection of madonna statues. Allow plenty of time, 1.5-2 hours if you like to read some of the signage and view all the galleries.

We wanted to see this on our latest visit to Prague, as we missed it last time. Google street view is great for directions. The Mediaeval art and wood carvings are brilliantly displayed. A lift and ramps give access to those less mobile than others. The whole building we found to be very hot and airless, take advantage of the... More

I did not even stumble upon this gem - I was on my way to main square when an elder man feeding pigeons caught my eye, I caught his, we greeted each other and then understanding I am a tourist he basically led me to this place (without telling what it is, asking if I want it, then again somehow...

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

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
