St. Agnes Convent is a pearl of Prague gothic architecture and a national historical landmark

St. Agnes Convent was founded in 1233 by King Wenceslas I and his sister Agnes who became its first abbess. The convent was an important spiritual centre of medieval era. The architecture of St. Agnes Convent is based on hidden meanings and symbolism. It is the first large Gothic building on the territory of Czech Republic. 
Royal burial ground of Přemysl dynasty was an important part of the convent inspired by the burial ground of French kings in Saint-Denis. Today St. Agnes Convent houses part of the National Gallery exhibition and high level concerts of classical and sacred music are held in convent's churches.
