Owner description: The church of Our Lady Victorious and of the Prague Infant Jesus has an extraordinary significance not only for its architecture and artistic decoration, but mainly for the fact that the famous statue of the Prague Infant Jesus is kept and venerated within. The extraordinary well preserved baroque interior is decorated by works of the best artists of the 17th and 18th centrury. The new altar, ambon, cross and baptistmal font by scuptor Otmar Oliva. The church is open for visitors every day. In addition to the liturgy in five languages it hosts also other public events - lectures, exhibitions etc. Museum of the Infant Jesus presents historical and contemporary robes of the statue of Infant Jesus from all over the world. The museum is open 8:30 am - 5 pm from Monday to Saturday and 1 pm - 6 pm on Sunday. Admission free.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
