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.

Famous all over the world, the Holy Child of Praha can actually be found in a surprising smaller church than what we expect. He is not in a Basilica or a Abbey, rather is is on a lateral side of a normal sized church, run by the Carmelite Order. If you are coming from the center of Praha, cross Charles... More

This is a beautiful old church, and it looks like the altar is being updated. When we stopped in, I went upstairs to the free museum with the Infant of Prague's garments, which was very interesting, since I remember my mom and grandma talking about the Infant when I was a little girl. There is also a small gift shop... More

Upon entering the church, head towards the right side where there are steps leading upstairs to a museum not to be missed. Different countries have sent garments intended for the Infant of Prague that were jaw dropping gorgeous. It was an amazing collection of garments sent for the Infant of Prague but dont miss the undergarments that were tucked in... More

Even if not catholic, you can feel the presence of God in the church. Beautiful interior, but please keep in mind that this is a church, and people actually pray, so don't go if you are not interested or just to take pictures. This is not a place to make a crowd.

I always return to this church of my childhood during a visit to Prague from the US. We were able to come here even during the communist era when I lived in Prague. The small statue of Bambino di Praga has a special meaning to my family. I am deeply touched by the small marble signs that express gratitude from... More

Attended the 12 noon English Mass and found the service truly moving. The accoustics are wonderful and on the day I attended we were treated to solos by an exceptional tenor and beautiful soprano. Even the choir was top-notch. Whether or not you are religious, this was a lovely retreat from the tourist clamour.
