I never miss coming to this church,when coming back to visit Prague after living in the US for many years.The small statue is also called Holy Infant Jesus of Prague.It has been a gift of Spanish origin and is well known in the Christian world .It is housed in the small church on Mala Strana, not far from the Charles Bridge and the czechs know it as "Prazske Jezulatko". It is believed,that it holds miraculous powers, especially connected to small children and expectant mothers. As a child, I went to school right next door, but the church was mostly closed during the communist regime. Now people come from all over the world to worship.I took my adult children and grandchildren in June, and my granddaughter was so fascinated,when I told her that they change the Baby Jesus outfit every day for a month. I think it's true,at least, I have been told that as a child. We had to return the next day for her to believe it. She is five.My whole family here in the States has the tiny statues, some even predating the communist regime-during which practicing any religion was not allowed.
The church is set back from the sidewalk, with wide steps leading to it .Don't miss it, even if you don't need a miracle.
