People began to believe that The Infant Jesus had miraculous power. Praguers was coming to see The Infant Jesus especially in difficult times, asking for help and even now, people from all over the world are continuing to visit The Lesser Town to ask The Infant Jesus for healing and other help.

The most charming and romantic part of Prague, which will leave you feeling as if you've stepped into a fairy tale. In the maze of romantic cobbled streets with plenty of picturesque houses, palaces, churches, parks, Baroque palace gardens, museums and even a lookout tower that resembles the Eiffel Tower. See The Charles Bridge, built in 14 century, which is decorated by a Baroque-style continuous alley of 30 statues and statuaries. Or the St. Nicholas Church which is one of the most beautiful examples of high Baroque architecture in Central Europe. The breathtaking Waldstein Garden, covering an area of more than 14,000 square metres or The Kinský Garden leading to Petřín Tower and of course, the magical Vrtbovská Garden, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and considered one of the most beautiful baroque gardens in Central Europe.

The museum exhibits works from František Kupka and Czech cubist sculptor Otto Gutfreund, as well as works by important Central European artists from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and former Yugoslavia. Also the Montanelli Museum, the Czech Museum of Music and the Ethnographic Museum - Musaion

There is also a very impressive memorial to the victims of communism, which symbolizes how the communist regime has affected political prisoners.
