Inside the ship of the Gothic Church of Our Lady, Saint Jerome, Cyril and Methoděj, Vojtech and Prokop are singing 4 girls and two are playing and shouting in the distance. The location of the Emauzy Monastery is today framed by the streets Na Slovanech, Pod Slovany, Trojická, Vyšehradská and Na Moráni. Somewhere here, according to legend, took place probably a execution of the Czech princes, such as Přemysl and Neklan, who ended their lives here. Once, here was probably a rock and it was also called Na Skalce. Next to it is the dark location of Na Morani street, which reminds the pagan goddess of death Morana. The Benedictine order owns the property and the Academy of Sciences rents part of the monastery.
