A great place to appreciate God and the wonders of catholic church. You get to meet some of the priest that have travelled far and wild talk about their work in developing countries and they give you literatures that will uplift your sprite. Wonderful place to visit and see.

We were right around the corner from this church so thought we would go in to see the Infant. However, mass was going on so did attend. This is a beautiful church and the statue is readily seen on the right hand side. No cost to see. Across the street are many shops you can purchase souvenirs, Christmas ornaments etc.... More

We visited this sanctuary to show our devotion to Infant Jesus of Prague, as catholics this was the most important part of our visit to Czech Republic. We respect the fact that many people in these reviews do not find this place worth visiting but they must understand and respect that this is not a tourist attraction, it is a... More

Being a Catholic and coming from a city devoted to the Infant Jesus, this was a must visit for me. The church was quite small but beautiful. It was quiet and kept sacred, even if there were quite a several tourists visiting. There is also a souvenir shop beside the church, if you want to purchase rosaries, images and other... More

If you are religious this church visit will mean even more than just seeing the churches beauty. While we were there a Polish group was there for a religious visit and the resident priest had urged them to sing. I didn't understand what they were singing but it was beautiful and made our visit there even more special. This was... More

There is little special about the standard Baroque church in which the Infant of Prague is displayed, apart from the Infant itself, around which there is a developed Catholic devotional cult (in the theological/anthropological sense of the word). For many Catholics, especially those of Central European ethnicity, pilgrimages to see the iconic statue are an important devotional practice. If such... More

Most churches are not meant to be tourist sites, so I can understand the disappointment some people felt. This is not a tourist attraction (as is Notre Dame), however, as a Roman Catholic (although not always a “routine” parishioner), this church is an important part of our faith. This church is more than just a tourist attraction. It has a... More

It does not matter if you believe or not in God, you have to visit this place. Full of pilgrims and of history, the atmosphere inside is simply incredible!

This is a must if you are in Prague. People from all over the world come to visit Him to ask for so many needs: help, healing, peace. He is in the church of Our Lady of Victory in the Lesser Town district. Walking distance from the Charles Bridge.

Pathetic, this is not a tourist attraction. A kids doll in a dress. At least it is free. Don't waste your time
