The Benedictine monastery founded by Charles IV as a haven for the Slavic liturgy (Na Slovanech) fell into despair in the Hussite era. This monastery was consecrated on Easter Monday 1372, thus its name is a reminder of the Easter gospel, which tells of the journey of the disciples to Emmaus.
The minster´s Baroque spires of were destroyed in February 1945 in an American bombing raid. The cycle of frescoes in the monastery cloister created by the court painters of Charles IV was severely damaged in fighting fire.
