St Agnes Convent, Prague Reviews
I didn't realize if this is a convent or an art gallery or a cultural center. Or, maybe, all of these, I presume - 'cause I saw a lot of artworks in the spaces of this convent, some amazing pieces of art! All those artworks change the entire areal, from the middle age to (post)modern times, it's somehow miraculously, no doubt! In the vicinity you may see the Vltava River - you may take a walk to think about the worldliness and you have to admire those wonderful bridges!
They never heard of air conditioning ! Stuffy, people filled concert hall without a molecule of breathable oxygen. Temp in the 30 C / 90 F & humid. I felt sorry for the musicians. Otherwise interesting historical convent worth seeing, skip concerts there.
Amazing place not too far from the center of the city, it's completely free for people under 26. There were very few people at the time of my visit (Friday at noon) so crowds will probably not be a problem and because of that it was very pleasant and relaxing. The exhibition that consists of medieval Christian paintings and sculptures from the romanic and gothic period (mostly 1200 - 1800), and a bit of modern art in the other parts of the monastery. The staff was very nice, and spoke excellent English. The place is climatized and your can take photos (without flash). There is also a gift shop and a Caffè in the monastery. You would probably need a couple hours to visit this place properly (if you like stopping at every painting and sculpture) because of the sheer size of the exhibition. Overall a must visit for lovers of art (or people under 26). Definitely, i recommend this place.
Lovely hidden place in Prague, calm and beautiful. And just a couple of tourists.
Nice gallery in a beautiful gothic monastery. Paintings from 14-15. century.
