The Convent of St. Agnes Comes Alive through History and Contemporary Sculpture

After almost two years, the National Gallery in Prague has concluded the revitalization of its oldest building: the Convent of St. Agnes of Bohemia. Hidden behind the high walls of Prague's Old Town, this national heritage monument, which up to now has functioned only as a museum, will now become a place to relax or attend cultural events.

The compound’s ground floor houses the self-guided tour of the history of the double convent and its founder. It also contains the lapidarium in the convent of Poor Clares (black kitchen and the refectory) and the convent of Friars Minor (cloister) which includes an important collection of architectural fragments from the monastery’s several building phases, as well as altar consecration plaques and tombstones. Both convent gardens with the exhibition routes through the convent’s architecture and sculptures by leading Czech artists (Aleš Veselý, František Bílek, Jaroslav Róna, Karel Malich, Pavel Opočenský, Stanislav Kolíbal, Čestmír Suška, Michal Gabriel, Stefan Milkov) are open to the public for free all year long.
