“Stunning christian church steeped in history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Sprint over after the clock chimes, it closes between 1 and 3pm and costs a donation if you want, admire the dazzling statues of pious historical figures, avenging golden angels, precious icons encased in glass and gold and the most serene atmosphere infused with a sense of past events. Sit in the pews and watch the pilgrims funnel past as they have done for hundreds of years...try to be quiet inside, it was clear that some dont respect this and it diminshes the impact, no pictures either which i agree with, it helps set the pious and otherworldy tone. Kids would be captivated by this.

“Lovely church.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The interior of the church is beautiful and well kept. The altar where the statue of the Infant Jesus is placed is exquisite and beautiful.
A must for the believers.

“Beautiful example of religious art.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

A must see while you are in the city. No entrance fee and a great part of the city. Well worth a visit.

“Stunning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

We walked passed this church serveral times during our stay and it wasn't until the third day that we actually went inside and I'm so glad we did. The inside is absolutely stunning and the story of the statue of Jesus is very interesting. I would say its a definite must to have a look inside during your stay in Prague, you will be pleasantly surprised and taken aback.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Free entrance and the church is adorable from the inside!
The souvenir shop in the church is pretty expensive I advise to go to the shop facing the church with bigger variety of souvenirs.
