I wanted to visit the church since it's one of the catholic landmarks of Prague. The place is very pretty, clean and quiet (not like the other very crowded and noisy ones). It's worth the visit and don't forget to make a little prayer while you are there.

Stopped in on one of the walking tours. The church is famous for the "Infant of Prague". Not worth going out of your way to find.

We found this church very simple and the effigy of the child interesting. However, what made the visit great was a Virginia who sang like angels. A good visit.

Having been closely related to this aspect of the Catholic Church in particular its association with the Carmelites it was a very rewarding spiritual experience to finally see the original image of the Holy Child of Prague.

Although this wouldn't be the top spot to see in Prague, this church and the Infant of Prague statue have been an important pilgrimage for faithful Catholics for several hundred years. The interior is beautiful, Baroque-style, but there is also a slightly different feel to it, since it remains a "working" pilgrimage point. Great gift shop.

I would not characterize myself as a religious person but this was a neat stop. The infant itself has a fascinating history. Make sure to go upstairs to see some of the outfits on display that people have made or donated to the infant over the years. I could not help thinking the whole time about the part in Talledega...

This church is one that you really need to see when in Prague. The statue of the infant Jesus is beautiful and the inside of the church is stunning.

We visit this beautiful church in Mala Strana area in Prague. "La iglesia del Divino Niño de Praga" on our own. It is well located and you actually visit for free.

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.
