A Site of Great Religious Importance.

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.

There is no Irish (American) Catholic home I know that is not protected by the Infant of Prague. So when presented with the opportunity to visit Prague I knew the Church of Our Lady Victorious was on my bucket list. It is a small but beautiful church where serenity abounds. The 16th C. church is opened for public visits without... More

This church is 16th century and has the infant Jesus of Prague in it. This is a must see. Not in the main tourist area The infant Jesus statue is 16th century. Just along the road is a traditional cafe next to the law courts and is well worth a visit.

Great design, with a wonderful ceiling and and architecture. The outside was a bit more commercial, with figures with head spaces for taking photos and poor animals kept in a very small area for the tourists` delight...

We have seen many beautiful churches in Europe. This is the only one in our travels where the priest came up introduced himself and asked where we were from. Interesting to learn he had been assisting Ebola victims in Africa a few months earlier. I found obtrusive sightseeing where there were people worshipping. The infant has much meaning in a... More

A very peaceful smaller scale church. When we visited, there were two orders of nuns making a holy pilgrammage. Very touching. The belief is that the Infant has protected Prague for centuries. If you look around the city, you will be amazed that the city was not bombed by the Germans or looted by the communists. Perspective to take with... More

Such a small yet beautiful church. The priest there was so welcoming and showed genuine interest in the tourists who visited by asking them about themselves, where they are from etc. worth a visit.

My favorite church in the world. It does not come close in size, architecture and relics to the larger and perhaps more beautiful churches in In Prague, but this was the church of my childhood, before the communists took over. The church was not closed during that time, but it was best not to be seen there, something people learned... 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.
