Church chapels
The main feature of the church is certainly its impressive facade. It was built in 1664. Above the church entrance you can spot the statue of Our Lady with the Child. After we enter the church we can continue to two chapels. They are separated from each other by a gilded latticework. The chapel of Our Lady with the merciful statue of Madonna from 1626 in a glass box is on the right. The opposite chapel is called kaple svatého Kříže (Chapel of the Holy Cross). The Infant Jesus of Prague was placed in there between 1656 – 1776.

Church interior Prague 1 - Church of the Virgin Mary Victorious - the Infant Jesus of Prague
Let´s focus on the main altar. It was performed in the shape of the triumphal arch by Tomáš od Ježíše in 1717. The statues on the altar demonstrate symbolize St. Theresa and St. John the Baptist and the prophets Elias and Elisha. In the upper part there is a copy of the small painting with the Christmas themes: Our Lady with Joseph and the shepherds leaning above the creche. Along the sides of the church we can also see a smaller altar and a pulpit. However, you should especially focus on the altar of the Infant Jesus on the right.

  Tourist guide PRAGUE CITY LINE - Prague 1 (14,7 MiB)

Prague 1 still belongs to one of the most attractive parts of the whole Prague. Probably nowhere else you can find such a concentration of historic monuments and places where the history and romance of bygone times are all around you. Hardly anywhere you can walk on the same paths where were walking Franz Kafka, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the Golem of Prague.
