  Tiny but beautiful

I have read many hundreds of posts on VT regarding Prague, but I can't recall too many posts recommending a visit to see the renowned Infant Jesus of Prague. The statue stands on a beautiful side altar in Our Lady of Victories Church in Prague and to Catholics especially, it is a true sight to behold. The history of the beautiful image is extremely interesting as it has survived many adventures in its lifetime, even being thrown on a garbage tip. It has a huge wardrobe of handmade clothes which are gifts from all over the world.

Address: Karmelitska 9, Praha
Directions: Just a few hundred metres from the Charles Bridge on the Castle side.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
