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

The outside of the church is quite plain looking but inside it's beautiful. There is a museum to see the clothing the infant has worn for different occasions. We had the pleasure of meeting Father Anastasio Roggero in the church. He asked if we were 100 percent Catholic and we said yes. He gave us a piece of art made... More

The history of church begins in the 17th century. After reconstruction in this century church receives its present appearance - including the Infant Jesus (Bambino di Praga). The statue of the Infant Jesus comes from Spain. Infant Jesus is the gift to the church from Polyxena of Lobkowicz. The bambino effigy enjoys world-wide renin (e.g. in Latin America). This church...

There is little I can say that will add to what has been said already by other reviewers. This is a pretty little church. It has two things that distinguished it for me. Firstly the people visiting when we were there treated the church with reverent respect which is nice in these days when so many churches have become tourist... More

This is a smaller church than most but the Infant of Prague is very important to see. Was said to be originally owned by St. Theresa of Avila.

It's incredible inside this church. It's very beautiful. And the child of Prague was great to see. Well worth a trip when visiting prague. The inside is so much more ornate and interesting than the exterior.

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.
