We only saw the church not the museum as we were not so interested in the clothes of the statue of the infant Jesus of Prague. The statue itself and the chapel around it are very impressive. We were here during mass and were very discrete in making photographs without flash. In the back of the church they have leaflets... More

This is a must see on a visit to Prague. It's a nice quiet and peaceful place. Even if your not religious it's worth a call just for the tranquil quiet time.

My husband and I stopped into this church and took some time to look around. We were allowed to take some pictures (unlike some other churches we visited). The black and gold is a beautiful contrast and looks very grand. There were many tourists there (Sunday afternoon), both inside and out.

My husband has wanted to visit this church for a very long time. He was not disappointed . Such a beautiful place for those of the catholic faith, or for those like me who just want to take in the beauty of this church.

Nice small church with an admission charge. They have some relics which makes it somewhat relevant. I was not impressed overall.

We visited here on a Saturday evening and were in time for the Spanish speaking Holy Mass. It was a beautiful experience in such a lovely church. The church is not very big but the gilded altars are truly majestic. The church is less of a tourist destination than say St. Nicholas Church in the same city, but for my... More

Excellent location; busy outside and close to other attractions, but quiet for Mass inside. The carmelite priests from different countries are friendly and devoted. The church looks its age, but if one studies the history of the country and the place will notice how amazing it is to be here. Most churches around the area have been converted into museums;...

This church, like many European churches, is quite impressive. However, and of course, the main reason to visit is to see the famous statue of infant Jesus. I was quite surprised that the church was not crowded and we were able to easily walk around. For me, this church and seeing that statue, was a huge highlight.

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
