As a child I had an Infant Jesus of Prague statue. It never occurred to me where the name comes from. As a child it is just a name. But when I came here I looked into it and found the church where the statue is and read the story about it. It was really lovely and so nice to... More

Moments from our hotel we visited on a cold February day. We were struck by the grandeur and beauty of the interior of this church.

The building itself was beautiful to view. I was traveling with my brother in law and sister in law and being Catholic they really enjoyed the visit. The child of Prague statue itself is interesting. Being close to the epiphany there were quite a few people present. It is within walking distance to St Nicholas Cathedral and the old town... More

This is located not far from the Cathedral of St Nicholas and Charles Bridge and is noted for the statue of the baby Jesus. The church is also very beautiful with other beautiful decorations throughout. It is worth seeing.

You can never visit prague without visiting the infant Jesus of prague. This holy church has a lot of meanings to many people. It was so nice visiting it. It's really stunning from inside, peaceful and calm. Very close to Charles bridge.

The Infant Jesus of Prague has had a special place in our family for many years so when I learned I could visit the statue while in Prague I couldn't wait. The church itself is stunning! Kneeling in prayer with strangers at the Infant Jesus was a profound experience that I will never forget. This church is worth the visit!!!

I was expecting a big statue of the Infant. However, it is about 30 cm long inside a glass. However, it is a nice church with lots of gold.

Staying in Mala Strana (Little Quarter)

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
