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. It's actually going into remodeling. You can visit a showroom with different dress on the second level climbing an spiral wooden stairs. It's not an easy task for handicap.we... More

One of the reasons we visited Prague is bec of the IJP. The church is known as Our Lady of Victorious but everyone knows it as where the Infant Jesus is. Nice church and you can find the Infant Jesus icon on the left side of the church. There's an English mass at noon on Sunday. It's a great place... More

millions visit this church to adore the holy statute of Jesus of Prague... don't be surprised of the size of the statute. but your visit isn't complete unless you visit the museum which hosts hundreds of different outfits from all over the world. A must see is the exhibition of nativity sets, on the right side of the church, where... More

The statues are dark braun or black, some how dirty, but the golden parts are just shinning. the 3rd window on the left is the most beautiful glasswork I ever seen.

A pretty church but by no means the best in Prague- that's the Church of Our Lady of the Snows. The figure of the Infant Of Prague is slightly creepy

We found this church very nice even though we were not catholic. It has a charming and cozy atmosphere and we felt very bliss to be there, especially with our little one along. 5 minutes from Malostranske namesti or the tram stop Hellichova is just in front of the Church. Worth a little detour when visiting St. Nicholas Church in... More

For those who don’t know it here a short version. A priest found an old statue of baby Jesus in the trash and decided to put it in the... More

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

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.
