Long Description:

Complex of the Convent of Merciful Sisters of the Vigin Mary of Jerusalem (Klášter Milosrdných sester Panny Marie Jeruzalémské), nowadays housing Ecclesiastic college of music Opava (Církevní konzervator Opava), is located in medieval core of Opava.

Opava physician Leopold Heiderich rebuilt abolished Fransciscan convent to municipal hospital during first decades of the 19th century. The hospital was strongly supported by Teutonic order in Opava, order's sisters served here and soon was hospital connected with newly estabilished Convent of Merciful Sisters of the Vigin Mary of Jerusalem (women's branch of Teutonic Order). The new austere Empire style buildings with neo-Gotghic chapel of the Elevation of the Holy Rood, both designed and built by order's architect Anton Onderka in 1841-1842, became a core of the Convent. Nowadays, convent houses Ecclesiastic college of music Opava (Církevní konzervator Opava), also managed and supported by Sisters from Teutonic Order. The chapel is used for regular services once per week.
