Monument Religious Site
Among the many liturgical treasures stored at Loreto Prague, the most important is a glistening object known as the "Prague Sun," a star-shaped vessel embellished with over 6,200 diamonds. This Baroque religious complex has been one of Europe's major pilgrimage sites since 1626, consisting of a cloister, church, clock tower, and the so-called "Holy Hut." This brick structure, loosely modeled on an Italian original, contains a 17th-century statue of the Virgin Mary, as well as relief sculptures depicting her life as a young mother. The distinct chime of the bell tower is famous for producing a series of different melodies.

  • Did not go inside but after seeing this church on google maps I knew I had to see it and get some photos of it,. It was constructed between 1626 and 1621. It was designed by an Italian architect and is said to have a baroque facade.
  • Nice place, well organized, nice jewlery and paintings, around 1 hour tour in the complex
  • Right opposite Černín is the Loreta, a pilgrimage site for many. Walk through the front gates and the lies what is supposedly a replica of Santa Casa in Italy, a historical monument that carries its own legend as the house which the Virgin Mary lived. Legend has it that angels carried the house from Nazareth to Loreta during the crusades and this house in Prague is a replica. Look closer to the steeple and you'll see the Loreta carillon which chimes beautiful music on the hour. The Loreta was undergoing some external restoration during my visit but which is a shame, couldn't get a good look at the entire facade. The museum is still open.
  • Lovely building and worth getting an audio guide
  • if you're a Linkin Park fan, this place is a must. the band shot the video for From the inside here

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
