The Přístěnek Artwork Prague – On a wave of joy

Lay your eyes on this 'sculpture' in Prague, and you'll most definitely have the same reaction most adults have - you'll want to go back to your childhood!

The gothic Anežský klášter (The Convent of St Agnes of Bohemia) consists of a large garden with almost twenty sculptures by contemporary Czech artists. Its location downtown is an advantage to get there easily, but the tall historical walls make the convent a bit anonymous from the outside. Let's discover now one of the artwork Přísteněk by František Skála (1956).

When I saw the house - Přísteněk (2016) for the first time, I was ecstatic. It is an absolutely cute thing. You'll also go crazy for it as an adult. I can tell you, all adults react in the same way. They take a lot of photos and smile from ear to ear. You feel like you're from another era, you want to return to your childhood for a while, you wish to have an experience like that - to be a part of a fairy tale. Your imagination works to the maximum at that moment.

The announcement on the mini wooden house will explain to you that you are looking at a sculptural object: "Dear visitors, The sculpture is an artwork, not a playground. The entrance is at one's own risk, children only under the supervision of adults." Children can cook in the house, walk through its interior and freely spend time there. I adore the place, the layout, and the idea of making everyone euphorically happy.

Entrances are from Na Františku Street or Anežská Street. The gardens were reopened to the public in 2016 after a devastating flood in 2002.
