St. Agnes cloister
In the northeastern corner of Staré Mesto is the former Convent of St Agnes, Prague’s oldest surviving Gothic building, now restored and used by the National Gallery. The first-floor rooms hold the National Gallery’s permanent collection of medieval art from Bohemia and Central Europe. The complex consists mainly of the cloister, a sanctuary and a church in French Gothic style. The graves of St Agnes and of Wenceslas I’s Queen Cunegund are in the Chapel of the Virgin Mary in the Sanctuary of the Holy Saviour. Alongside this is the smaller Church of St Francis, where Wenceslas I is buried. Part of its ruined nave and other rooms have been rebuilt as a chilly concert hall.
