A bit off the beaten path, the monastery is very quiet compared to the city centre. Its history is explained on numerous information boards across the area providing both a good overview and interesting details and anecdotes. Definitely worth a visit. If you want to...More

This is a beautiful complex with a museum that contains a large collection of fourteenth century paintings and sculpture. We were almost alone in the museum, as it is rather off the beaten track and probably not on the list of "must sees" of the...More

The Czech Republic has a series of national galleries. One details Renaissance and Enlightenment art. One is for art of the 19th and 20th centuries. St. Agnes is not only a historic 13th century convent, but also home to the nation's gallery of Gothic art....More

This one is a bit away from the tourist area. A very old monastery with not a lot of flash, so it is a nice break for appreciation of architecture. The gardens hold modern art exhibits.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
