Agnes of Bohemia became a nun in the 13th century. The convent in her honor itself was not very interesting--perhaps because of the lack of significant reading material that explains the history and significance of each room and enclave. The National Gallery's medieval art collections in the attached museum was a quite a bit more interesting. Religious paintings and statues... More

If you like mediaeval art - particularly that of the early renaissance then you will be in for a treat at this location. It really is a don't miss attraction. There are so many wonderful paintings of such high quality that I wasn't aware about beforehand it came as a massive pleasant surprise. It took us about two hours to... More

Came in here thinking they'd have a few relics to look at, but there are hundreds! We spent a couple of hours in here but could have stayed longer if we'd had time. Really enjoyed looking at artefacts from over hundreds of years.

After getting lost a couple of times on our walk, we finally made it to the convent. Admission is free, so after seeing the Museum of Medieval Art housed in the same building, we strolled through the convent. It dates back to the 13th century and contains the graves of several members of royalty. High ceilings and soaring arches are... More

This convent, the oldest Gothic building in the city is usually forgotten by tourists. Everyone visiting the castle, Charles Bridge ... but few tourists know this place even if it is in the center of the city. Charming place, beautiful architecture, but above all is the magnificent collection of paintings and statues of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The... More

We thought we'd spend 20 minutes or so at the St. Agnes Convent exhibition of sacred art 13-15th century. (The National Museum collection is housed there.) Instead, we were there for a couple of hours - astounded by the collection - both quantity and quality. Room after room - all displayed magnificently - of carved figures and paintings from all...

It was worth the visit, plenty of medieval art to explore, some of it dating back to the 12th century. The convent is very ancient and full of history. Yet, quiet, with few visitors.

A little hard to find but worth it to see one of the oldest sites in Prague. The exhibition is informative, with ecclesiastical figures with good explanations. They are so well preserved that you feel like the eyes are following you around. They date from the 12th century, interestingly some of the madonnas wear wedding rings pointing to the mystical...

Very beautiful and well put together. Lots of rich history from the medieval times. Very catholic focused. The convent itself is absolutely stunning I would love to visit again.

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

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.
