The Convent of St. George is located in Prague Castle, next to the St. George’s Church with a red facade. This is the first convent in Bohemia. It was built by Boleslav II's order in 973, and his sister was the first dean of the monastery. Now it no longer functions as a monastery. Instead, it has been transformed into a National Gallery of Art, which houses many works of different styles from the Czech Renaissance and Baroque from the 14th to 17th centuries.
St. George's Abbey is right next to St. George's Church and there are no nuns now and it is converted into an exhibition hall. But there is not much interest in the exhibitions so no visit was made.
