Modern meets traditional in grand old Prague

Whilst many European cities have gradually modernised and adapted a 21st century look, Prague excels at changing with the times whilst remaining classically beautiful. Strolling around town, you get a sense of Prague’s rich and troubled history, but the culture of old-meets-new cosmopolitan desires to embrace the weekend-away spirit. As for shopping, unearth beautiful craftsmanship and wonderful jewelry.

"The more you honor me, the more I will bless you." Editors' Note

The world-renowned statue of Infant Jesus of Prague (Pražské Jezulátko) can be seen inside the Church of Our Lady Victorious in Malá Strana. The wax statue was brought into Bohemia in 1628 by princess Polyxena von Lobkowitz, who later donated it to the Discalced Carmelites in Prague.

A copy of the Infant Jesus of Prague (Pražské Jezulátko) is placed in the University Chapel in Naples, Italy. You can see replicas of the statue in many other catholic churches as well.
