Klášter sv. Anežky České review Rate it

This intimate and manageable part of the National Gallery, set in the oldest surviving Gothic building in Prague (worth a visit in its own right), houses a collection of Bohemian and Central European medieval art from 1200 to 1550. Prague, after all, was at the forefront of European artistic development during the reign of Charles IV (1346-78), and one of the greats of the end of the 14th century was the Master of Třeboñ. Here you can see his altarpiece featuring the Resurrection of Christ and his Madonna of Roudnice, an example of the 'Beautiful Style' that prevailed until the outbreak of the Hussite wars. The Gothic style remained popular in Bohemia right up to the 16th century, as seen in the extraordinary wood carvings. The convent is fully wheelchair-accessible.
