gothic & romanesque art and architecture

My Czech art and architecture class is incredibly interactive, and I love it! Two days ago, we went on our first "field study" to the St. Agnes Convent (now a museum) to learn firsthand the differences between Gothic and Romanesque art/architecture. I'm trying to memorize all the names and characteristics of each part of the building (for example: flying buttresses. Doesn't that sound so funny?!). Some pictures:

The exterior is still beautiful...

St. Wenceslas was buried there!

My shadowy figure in front of all the Gothic arches! (Gothic, because they're pointy. 10 points for me!)
