When you enter the garden of the St. Agnes Monastery in the Old Town, you will immediately be surrounded by calm. This is probably an effect of the monastery’s setting, the fact that the building houses the collections of the National Gallery, and perhaps the fact that most people in Prague don’t know they can go there to have a break, sit down, and drink a coffee or wine. So there is no such bustle as in the gardens of restaurants, which are just around the corner from the monastery (including the Old Town Square, after all).

While you’re sitting there enjoying the peace and quiet, take a look around the garden. You’ll find not only the cute Shelter by František Skála, but also Michal Gabriel’s Dancers.

And why are they without horses? This is more of a reminder of another beautiful installation of Michal Gabriel sculptures. Just take the three subway stops from Staroměstská to Dejvická – and you’ll immediately know what it is about.
