At Convent of St Agnes of Bohemia, 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.

  • A good museum that can be visit if you have enough time while visiting Prague
  • 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.
