- TRAVELNET The
Czech Republic - Classicism and Empire - Unique "galleries" of Classicist
sculpture may be found at two Prague cemeteries, Olsanske Cemetery above
Vinohrady and the Lesser Town (Malostransky) Cemetery in Kosire. From Olsanske
Square one may enter into to the circular Church of St. Roch, which neighbours
the Lapidarium which, in turn, houses many classicist sculptures of Prague. At
Plzenska Street, one finds the old Malostransky Cemetery which might be
considered a museum of buried Classicist Funereal sculpture as well. Dominant is
a monument with a kneeling figure of the Passau Bishop, Leopold Thun-
Hohenstein, made from cast iron in 1830-31 from a model by the Prague sculptor Vaclav Prachner.

Brdy - Together with the little church Christopher Dienzenhofer was building
the hermitage and the monastery. Both these buildings were finished in 1694 and
they were originally planned for the Benedictine monks. The sculpture Pieta is
situated in the hermitage. Its author was the member of the famous Prague

finished in 1997.
Agnes Convent at SunSITE Czech Republic - A second important phase in the
work dates from the year 1940. After archaelogical investigation the buildings

great respect. In the renewed Agnes Convent is a permanent exhibition of czech
painters and sculptors of the 19th century. Its beautiful ambience also
serves for temporary exhibition and concerts.
