“Historic church worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

This is not easy to find, though it's on a main street in Prague. Many locals don't know about it. You don't have to be a Catholic to appreciate the story of the Infant of Prague contained inside the Church of Our Lady Victorious. Visit the museum, see the outfits sent from all around the world, to clothe the statue at different times and read about them. The museum's entrance is through the church, to the right of the altar.

“Not wheelchair friendly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Is an old church and you have like 15 steps on the front gate to get in with no ramp available.

From the outside is a regular building.

“Interesting little church!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Prague as it is pretty unique.

Entrance is free and included in the church is also a little museum tour upstairs to have a look at some variations to the cloak that the infant Jesus is wearing that came from across the world.

A little sourvenir shop is also available in the church for you to get some sourvenirs if you want.

The main altar was scaffolded when we visited but the altar with the infant Jesus was located at the side and is available for viewing.

Overall, a very unique church and is definitely worth a visit.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Visited the shrine where the statue of the Infant Jesus of Prague is maintained is located in the Lesser Town of Prague. The church, dedicated to Our Lady of Victory and St. Anthony of Padua was very beautiful inside. We enjoyed our visit this world famous place

“Amazing place too many miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This is one of those churches that many visitors, and even residents, may find easy to miss. Although it is conveniently located along several tram lines, if you don't know what is inside, you may think, "Oh, another of the '100 Spires' of Prague", and pass on by. Don't! Take the time to experience the history of the "Infant of Prague", visit the small museum, and take some quiet moments to reflect on the faith the vast majority of the Czech populace seems to have lost. You might just find yours.
