The atmosphere of this convent resembles the Cloisters in New York City. If you are interested in religious art spanning from the medieval through the Renaissance, you would appreciate the ample collection of wood carvings and paintings. The paintings may look repetitive after seeing so many Madonna and Child portraits, as well as the same saints, apostles and biblical scenes... More

This is an attraction in two parts, one is the old convent building which you can walk around and admire. For the kids there is a room set aside for interactive play and art. Quite stark and plain now but still impressive and atmospheric. Information boards in English and Czech tell you about the history and there are illustrated books... More

If you are into religious statues and art then this is the place for you. It is a bit overwhelming with the amount of objects to view but they have taken some infra red images of some artworks and it is interesting to see what lies beneath the paint. There is a great little art room where children (and adults)... More

Some medieval pictures are worth seeing and so is the old convent and its sculpture garden, which is a new addition, a quiet place where you can go without paying for entry. The cafe is very cosy, like someone's living room with classical old furniture. Good coffee and cakes. The small streets around are picturesque, containing the 'smallest house in... More

Visited at 2pm on 25/2. Many confused and disappointed tourists were circling the convent trying the closed doors. The museum's opening hours are 10 - 6pm on a Saturday. There was no sign that explained the museum was closed - we only managed to find out that it was closed due to 'technical difficulties' when our hotel receptionist kindly telephoned... More

We went here on purpose to look around a Convent. And I really wished we hadn't made the effort as it really was not worth it. It has several rooms with religious artefacts/ relics in them. Then there are other rooms with nothing in them, including the chapel. We walked around it in about 20 minutes. I had the feeling... More

Tucked away in a small street in the old town the Convent of St Agnes of Bohemia is now used as an art gallery . We arrived after the posted opening time of 10.30 to find it closed ( maybe because of the snow ?) so suggest checking its open if visiting in next few months

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods 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.
