At Convent of St. Agnes, trace the development of Czech art, starting with mid-14th-century panel paintings and sculptures, then moving on to 15th- and the early-16th-century oil paintings executed in the International style. The authentic environment of a Gothic convent is the backdrop for an exhibit of medieval and early Renaissance art depicting mostly religious subjects. A 13th-century princess who opted for a life of charity and piety over a life of luxury and comfort founded the convent and became its first abbess. The convent is also renowned as being haunted by the ghost of the Unhappy Nun.

  • This 13th century convent, it's beautiful, primitive Gothic style after its restoration.

When I visited were empty and most impressive: simple yet elegant architecture that is well worth the visit.

  • One of the best exhibitions in Prague. Art of the Middle Ages in the beautiful interiors of the former monastery. Ticket prices are not high.
  • Excellent medieval paintings. 👌
  • Really like it. You can take picture and in the store at the end, there a nice book with all the collection.
  • For those who like Gothic, medieval, early Renaissance is probably the best Museum to visit in Prague. A large amount, accessible and in excellent condition. To see!
