This is a must stop for any serious Catholic, especially those with a devotion to the brown scapular. Statues of the Infant of Prague are ubiquitous in Catholic culture, and to see the original here in this church is really something. It's very accessible, and they don't charge you to get in.

It is a short walk from Charles Bridge. I always come here to see the Shrine of the Infant Jesus. There is a section of the church dedicated to the shrine and displays different costumes for the "Santo Nino" donated from different countries.

Lovely old church a little bit off the beaten path. We happened to visit during mass, so be respectful. If you enter church stay to right wall and the intact of Prague is right there. Donations welcome but admission is free. You can view the infants many outfits but we just wanted to pray there.

A magnificent Catholic Church, with the beautiful Statue if the "Infant Jesus of Prague" It is advisable to know the history behind the Statue and why the "Infant Jesus of Prague" has such veneration amongst Catholics, world wide.

We didn't learn of the story of the Infant Jesus of Prague until just before our trip. I'm very glad we did and were able to go to the Church! What a wonderful story!

Most travelers will visit several churches in a city during their stay. Prague certainly has a worthy set of churches/synagogues but the most popular (Spanish Synagogue, St Vitus etc) are overrun by lines or are relatively costly). On the other hand, this church is just as nice (though not as large) as the others and the baby Jesus relic is... More

i grew up in Ireland where our home like most other Catholic homes had a statue of the Child of Prague so I always knew that this particular Catholic devotion was special to those of the Catholic faith. If you are solely interested in Gothic architecture etc. then this church will not be high up your visit priorities. However, as... More

We visited the church on 2 occasions, the 2nd time to attend Mass in English on the Sunday. If not a religous person you may not be as impressed as a visit to Our Lady of Tyn church in Old Town Square, but my wife and I enjoyed the simplicity of the former.

This church is obviously notable for the Infant of Prague, and it's altar pieces are quite magnificent, but if you are looking for good architecture, go to St. Vitus Cathedral, as this building itself is quite plain.
