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

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
