Some nice paintings but most are in need of restoration to bring the life back into them. The no photos rule is a bit ridiculous especially considering much nicer galleries with more prestigious paintings are fine with taking pictures. Worth the visit if you are a lover of art not so much if you aren’t.
Beautiful place with a rich history intertwined with the czech royalty. The medieval art displayed here is stunning, especially the fact that you can get incredibly close to it all is great. When i visited here it looked dclose at first but i guess it was really just a slow day, only a couple of other people and staff were there. I would recommend also going on such a slow day, it really gives you time and peace to focus on everything around you.
Magical place with atmospheric garden. Full of stillness inside. Recommend not just for tourists but also for citizens. Not well known. Hidden gem
This convent gave me goosebumps with the simplicity, artistic and religious history. Saint Agnes of Bohemia and her brother King Wenceslas are both buried here, as well as his queen and a queen of Hungary
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!
