My favorite church in the world. It does not come close in size, architecture and relics to the larger and perhaps more beautiful churches in In Prague, but this was the church of my childhood, before the communists took over. The church was not closed during that time, but it was best not to be seen there, something people learned... More

On entering the church one finds a kind of inner peace. The Infant Jesus statue is really majestic and brings one closer to God. The church itself if beautiful. The Carmelite Priests were very friendly and provided a blessing with the Infant Jesus Statue and distributed prayers of the language of your choice. A visit to this church should be... More

It was very moving to see the Infant of Prague having been raised Catholic and loving the constantly changing vestments in our church growing up. The gift shop has nicer souvenirs than around town and are reasonably priced. Not far from the Charles Bridge on the castle side.

Very solemn and the oldest image of Infant Jesus in the world. What is interesting infront of the church , there is Pinoy (Filipino) restaurant. in the heart of the city. Worth visiting to know the history, devotion, miracles of Infant Jesus .

Infant of Prague is in a church just 3 blocks from the Charles Bridge on the Castle side of the river. It is a short walk and well worth going to see. Plenty of religious gift shops on the street but it is better to buy in the gift shop attached to the church itself.

Why this church? Well almost 54 years to the day, at our wedding, friends gave us a framed print of the Infant. We at the time had no idea of its history and so as we were travelling through Europe we decided to find the location and view the statue whose image has graced the walls of every home in... More

We liked seeing this little statue we had heard about all of our lives. It is quite historically significant. But, it is in a congested part of the city. I recommend hiring a taxi...pay driver to wait.

Even if I am not catholic, one can say that you can feel the presence of God in the church.Beautiful interior, and a must see. Please keep in mind that this is a church, and you don't need to go there just to take pictures. People are actually having their prays there.

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
