A great collection of pre-renaissance paintings with some real gems like the Madonna of the Roundnice, and the 3 pieces of the Master of Trebon altar. The building itself, one of Prague’s oldest, is beautifully restored and full of history. It’s always very civilised in...More

Love art, thoroughly enjoy a good exhibition when travelling but this was not good at all. Repetitive displays, minimal information, within 30mins had totally had enough. Good enough value for money I guess ... about £6 each to get in. Cloakroom so you don’t have...More

Museum of medieval art was really great! Such a well done display and good collection. Convent and church were accessed through stairs and enjoyed it all. Lovely restaurant with outside seating with fruit dumpling the way great grandma made them!

A nice collection of medieval art including paintings, sculptures and architecture from 1200-1550. The gardens and convent are free to roam on a self guided tour, but the collection costs about US 10. They do have a senior discount. The museum is well laid out...More

Seeing this large collection of medieval art can take a while as there were many more galleries than expected. The art works are in excellent condition, especially considering their age. There are good labels for each piece but not enough overall descriptions of the periods...More

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
