The Discalced Carmelite Nuns in Prague have called their monastery home for more than two centuries. When they decided to move from central Prague to a new village east of the city, they were met with a few challenges.

The Carmelite Nuns chose a former farm in the village of Drasty, which has a history dating back to 1305. When they moved in 2018, they found a plethora of dilapidated structures and landscaping. The nuns have since transformed the farm into a new convent complex that will serve the people of the community.
