Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.

The Loreta church bells are ringing.

But they are not just ringing, they are playing a song. The Marian song.
So lovely, that I wait around for it. The performance goes on every hour ( 9am - 6pm ).
The famous chime of the bells is part of my childhood memories..
Miraculously, they chimed even during the communist era, when I Iived in Prague.

The small bells are located in the tall clock tower and are original. 27 of them are connected to the clock. It works the same way today, as when it was first created.

The 6,222 diamond monstrance on display is called Prague Sun. It is sure to dazzle. There are many other valuable artworks to be seen.
I enjoy the peace and quiet , the tranquility of the serene courtyard.

Taking a tram to Pohorelec is an easy way to Loretanske Namesti . Walking down the hill from there is also an easy way getting to the Castle.

We were staying in Hotel Savoy , close by to the church, for the first part of our stay in Prague. That made it very easy to spend more time in the Castle area that week.

Our month long visit in Prague was pre - Covid. Prague was still full of tourists.
I am very sorry to read, that the church is experiencing hard times now.
After all those years. It is heartbreaking !

I hope and pray that the current situation gets better soon. Hoping, my husband and I will be able to return, once again ....

Growing up on Mala Strana, Sunday's visits here with my Dad, are still remembered fondly.

Very special part of Prague , indeed ....

Till next time,
Dekuji a Nashledanou....

This was in our guidebook as a potential must see, so we decided to give it a go. It's a bit out of the way and the place itself is quite peaceful. It has a weird and wonderful religious collection of various artefacts and once part of the museum was actually quite creepy (old angels statues in various forms of disrepair), so all in all it did not feel like a "must-see" to me personally. Having said that, if you have a specific interest in those religious artefacts, you will likely find this more interesting.

The church and surrounding cloisters are not the most spectacular site in Prague’s Castle District, but it is worth visiting if you have time.

There is a replica of a chapel of the Holy House in Loreto Italy, which is oddly done on the inside, with even cracks in the walls being replicated. The exterior of this chapel is decorated with statuary.

The church is an impressive Rococo work, and the surrounding cloisters are also worth viewing. On the upper levels of the cloisters are the treasures of the Loreta, which include many golden monstrances.

Parts of this monastery may be slightly off-putting to non-religious visitors at times, but if one has an interest in such things, this is well worth a visit.

This is a must-see. Stunning church in secluded surroundings. We took the English audio-guide, which was really good and worth the cost - very informative, but just the right amount of information and not overload. The Ministry gardens adjacent are also worth looking around.

Loreta Praha is situated in the upper town, so it is a little bit of a walk but it is worth your effort. Not that many groups of tourists. You can visit a beautiful baroque church, a lovely monastery corridor and a museum with silver an golden religious objects. We liked it very much. You have to pay extra if you want to take pictures. When you leave the monastery you have a lovely view at the city around the corner.

Why do you need to pay when you want to take a picture?
1. Nice place with nice decorations.
2. Nice exhibits, kind of different from the exhibits we see in different places.
3. It is pretty pricey comparing to other attractions.
4. Though it is a little bit pricey, it worth your visit.

Interesting, especially if you are passionate about objects of worship, which are the main exhibits. Many of them are of a special beauty, carefully worked. In the inner courtyard is a very beautiful little chapel, which looks like a copy of the Holy House in Loreto, Italy.

One of my favourite sights during my first trip to Prague. Lovely peaceful place not too far from Prague Castle. The church inside is really beautiful and the exhibition upstairs was quite interesting too.

This beautiful 17th century baroque church, chapels and cloisters and definitely worth visiting. It was a unique experience and not like the other churches in Prague. This is close to Prague Castle and can be combined with that visit.

Wasn't expecting much from this place, but it's stunning from start to finish. The exterior is lovely, with little statues all outside the church. Staff were very friendly and welcoming, and explained the layout of the grounds. The chapel itself is also beautiful, and there are exhibits on the top floor of reliquaries and other interesting items. Would definitely recommend!
