I hunted for this church purely because it was my grandmothers dream to see the little infant Jesus of Prague but communism was alive and well when she could have made the trip and that wasn't allowed... So I went for her and because of my personal attachment to the wax relic it was an amazing experience! As I walked... More

The wax infant is a bit over a foot tall and is displayed in a side alter of the church. The dress collection is house upstairs and is free to see. If quirky is your thing, take the time to visit the infant.

The church contains the original Infant of Prague. There is a gift shop and you can get items blessed on the spot. Interesting place!

I'm not a religious person at all, but came to Infant of Prague bc one of my travel mates was told by her parents she had to come to this church. We arrived early in the day and literally were the only people in the church. Gorgeous church and because I was visiting around the holidays, the infant jesus wasn't... More

The church is a must visit and once again an interesting place to visit even if you are not into religion. Stunning place to visit even if you are passing by.

This was our 4th trip to Prague and we had never been inside of this church. So glad we did this time because we just happen to get in during a mass. There is of course a statue of Infant Jesus. The Infant is dressed by the nuns and each time you come to the church you may very well... More

Infant Jesus looked so adorable in his grand clothes. We recited the popular and powerful Prayer of Fr. Cyril before Him (It's printed behind the small Holy Picture which is obtainable from the priest for free). We attended Mass also. The atmosphere was so peaceful. After Mass, we immediately went to buy some statues and medals. These were urgently requested... More

As this is on the way to Petrin Hill we called in on our way past. The main feature is the Infant of Prague which is interesting and impressive to see. The church is nice as well. The clothing is interesting as well. Especially of interest if you are Catholic.

This is a bit of a tricky one in a way in that if you are a Catholic this place will have at least some resonance, if you are a Christian of another denomination you will at least identify with the devotion. So whether you visit here depends on why the visit might take place. The church is very attractive... More

Visitors of the Church of Our Lady Victorious may be disappointed to see the rue and only Holy Child of Prague housed inside a glass case and surrounded by so much decoration that you can barely see the face. From an artistic point of view, it does not offer much, though it may be a miraculous item. The church itself... More
