Cheap hotels near Convent of Saint Agnes in Prague, Czech Republic
No longer a functioning monastery, the Convent of St. Agnes today hosts the Medieval European and Bohemian art holdings of the National Gallery in Prague. The 13th-century complex was abandoned as a convent in 1782 and was not restored until the 1960’s.
The building and museum was named for Agnes of Prague, who was a 13th-century Bohemian princess who left her life of luxury to assist the poor and sick. Though she died in 1282, it was not until 1989 that she was canonized by Pope John Paul II.
