Convent of St. Agnes of Bohemia
One of the oldest and most important Gothic buildings in Prague, the Na Františku monastery, is named after its founder, the Přemyslid princess St. Agnes (ca 1211–1282), canonized in 1989. Agnes of Bohemia, daughter of Ottokar I and Constance of Hungary, was an exceptional figure whose importance reaches beyond the borders of Bohemia. She founded her monastery with the help of the royal family at the beginning of the 1230s and entered it soon after to become its abbess. The Na Františku monastery was the first double convent of Poor Clares and Friars Minor in the trans-Alpine region, but it was also meant as the Přemyslid family necropolis. It was the site of a royal coronation, witness to royal funerals and the final resting place of Agnes of Bohemia. Because of its importance, it was declared a national cultural monument in 1970.
The compound’s ground floor houses the self-guided tour of the history of the double convent and its founder. It also contains the lapidarium in the convent of Poor Clares (black kitchen and the refectory) and the convent of Friars Minor (cloister) which includes an important collection of architectural fragments from the monastery’s several building phases, as well as altar consecration plaques and tombstones. Both convent gardens with the exhibition routes through the convent’s architecture and sculptures by leading Czech artists are open to the public for free all year long.
