Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web
The first Baroque church built in the city, Church of Our Lady Victorious contains a wax statue of the infant Jesus, one of the most revered Roman Catholic relics in the world. Built in 1613 for the city's German-speaking Lutherans, the church passed to Carmelite hands in 1624, at the conclusion of the Thirty Years' War. The figure of Jesus, believed to have protected the city during that war, now rests on the church's central altar. The subject of a worldwide cult, the statue draws huge numbers of pilgrims from Catholic countries. To see the more than 70 costumes used to dress the figure for various religious occasions, visit the museum behind the church.

  • We could pass this church without paying attention but worth to enter because it is richly decorated inside.

  • Nothing special, the Church does not do the expected experience-more level the average Polish Church of the period than the stunning monument. To this I had the "pleasure" to hit the large religious group from Malaysia or the Philippines, and the man felt like at the market. You can join by going, but compared with the surroundings rather weak.

  • Located in Mala Strana this Church receives a pilgrimage of Catholics and tourists. The Church is beautiful and the image of the infant Jesus of Prague is small in a side altar but thrills.
