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.

I will never get back the precious minutes I wasted looking at this freaky little doll. Horrible. Horrible. Horrible.

This is a doll in a dusty old dress. At least it's free. I guess if it's raining you might go inside but shut your eyes if you do - that thing is creepy.

This was a little church on the side street with an attached museum up a side staircase. The museum features the clothing and artifacts created for the infant Jesus. Towns over the world are invited to make special clothing for the infant's statue that is displayed in the attached church. The clothes are changed on the statue to match holy... More

In the relatively cluster of historic venues in the heart of Prague is the Church of Our Lady Victorius -- home of the Infant Jesus of Prague. Originally bequeathed in the 16th century, this religious icon is often sought after by expectant mothers who seek "a blessing". The Infant Child often is portrayed in different costumes, much like the Mannequin-Pis... More

In Malta, every citizen knows about "il-Bambin ta" Praga" (Holy Child of Prague in Maltese). When a Maltese person visits Prague he/she makes it a point to pay homage to the Infant Jesus. Returning to Malta, such person, with an angelic smile, just tells you "I saw the "Bambin ta' Praga" The smile takes a long time to fade. Other... More

This is a must stop for any serious Catholic, especially those with a devotion to the brown scapular. Statues of the Infant of Prague are ubiquitous in Catholic culture, and to see the original here in this church is really something. It's very accessible, and they don't charge you to get in.

It is a short walk from Charles Bridge. I always come here to see the Shrine of the Infant Jesus. There is a section of the church dedicated to the shrine and displays different costumes for the "Santo Nino" donated from different countries.
