The Venue – 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.

In this authentic environment, a permanent exhibition of mediaeval and early Renaissance art, initially organised in November 2000, will be open for all delegates to visit!

Join us for a relaxing and cultural evening, accompanied by the tunes of medieval music!
