Inspirational and architecturally significant, Infant Jesus of Prague dates back to the 17th century and remains a fine example of Baroque architecture. Most visitors come to see a waxwork statue of infant Jesus, brought here from Spain in the 1620s. The church's main claim to fame, this figure is said to have protected the city from plague outbreaks and the destruction caused elsewhere by the Thirty Years' War. The focus of worldwide attention, the figure attracts a steady stream of religious travelers, arriving from as far away as Latin America. Don't miss the onsite museum, housing dozens of costumes used to dress up the statue for various religious occasions.

Peaceful and full of energy. One of my favorite places to come down and connect my self with the universe. You have masses in English every Sunday at 12pm, and in Spanish an Italian also. Just check their website for the exactly day and time. For those visiting the city, there is a lovely shop beside the church where you can find beautiful gifts and souvenirs. You can also have a quick coffee outside the church. The Jesus Infant of Prague altar is breathtaking.
Very famous and beautiful church in Prague. A must visit. English services at various times. It is possible to have a mass said for a loved one or friend. (Go to the back of the church and see the priest). There is a gift shop on the left hand side before you enter the church.
