Another nice piece of saved history

Much has been lost in 800 years, but much has been saved and restored. All the displays are interesting and also in English. Well worth the visit included in the group entrance... read 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

The Convent is nicely restored and houses religious art. Both are worth seeing and are part of the National Gallery pass. The Convent history is nicely told.

Difficult to find, (it is quite near Old Town Square) but well worth a visit, if Medieval art is of interest to you. A great collection from 1100 -1600. Very well laid out and presented, except some of the labeling is a bit confusing. Excellent examples of Bohemian wood carving - really amazing condition and skill, bearing in mind that... More

Was pleasantly surprised at the beauty and charm of this historical Convent. We were hotelled right by it and wandered in through one of the garden entrances not realising there is a fantastic space inside that is free to explore. The grounds have some lovely modern sculpture and useful description boards telling the history of the town-within-a -town. Then inside... More

Apart from priceless collection of medieval arts (which is part of the National Gallery), you can find a spacious art studio for kids. I have a 2year old, and she already enjoyed stamping, drawing, pressing paper etc...but it's great for even older kids. All activities with St. Agnes of Bohemia themes, so no kitsch and still educational...

I would recommend this place for people who have more than one week in Prague, or that aren't there for the first time. The czech capital has many other more interesting places to visit.

We did not have to pay to get in because we were part of a walking tour. Lucky for us. The convent does not have any furniture so it more of an set of large empty rooms. Interesting but not very overwhelming. If you miss it, you did not miss a lot, but if you are in the area nice... More

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

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.
