- This convent, built in 1233, was closed down in the late 18th Century but was then renovated during the latter part of the 20th Century to house a collection of 19th Century art from the National Gallery. Today, the collection is on public display. Originally a convent for the Order of the Poor Clares, it was named after the sister of King Vaclav I who became an abbess here. She was eventually canonized in November 1989. A charming café on the premises offers cold dishes with Moravian wine and a variety of coffee and chocolate desserts. A visit on the first Wednesday of the month will fetch you free entry.
