After visiting Prague Castle we decided to take the short walk to the Loreto. Although I wouldn't say this is a must do, it was very pleasant to walk around and it was worth it just to see inside the baroque style church.
Staying next to the castle for a week gave a great opportunity to visit much in this area of Prague, including Loreto.
Not knowing much about it, it was a pleasant surprise discovering the origins and symbolisms of Loreto, and the reason why it became...More
Well worth visiting Loreta while in Prague. One of the most beautiful chapels in Europe, an unbelievable treasury, and so much history. You’ll enjoy it so much more than following the crowds around Prague Castle complex.
The ideal place to go to get away from the crowds in Prague. And there is plenty to see (and hear):
The Santa Casa (Holy House) which is a replica of the house of the Virgin Mary - this is the most important in Bohemia;...More
When visiting the Castle take an hour or so to admire this beautiful complex. Try to visit the place when the bells strike for the complete hour and enjoy the carillion (you can watch it live from the 2nd floor via live cams). The highlight...More
This is a fascinating place to visit, showing a broad spectrum of the time. Be aware that interior photography requires an additional ticket- it was worth it.
Many other reviews discuss the courtyard with saints (the biography of each is fascinating), the Black Virgin, and...More
What a surprise this turned out to be. We really enjoyed our visit, and to get the most out of it would highly recommend getting the audio guide. There are many interesting parts to the Loreto, but the Treasury was the highlight for us. We...More
We randomly decided to go in and check it out. Really interesting history and paintings and the treasury is amazing. I recommend using the audio guide and allow at least an hour. There is also a little terrace on the second floor with a bench...More
I was attracted to this from my Lonely Planet guide because of the Bearded Lady.Poor thing was promised to the King of Crete and she wanted none if it so asked God to help.
He promptly gave her a beard which sorted things out except...More
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the
historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.

Thank you for your question - of course NOT! You can freely shoot any architecture! The Photo Permission fee is an effective instrument to reduce the number of photographing people in the Loreto Expositions displaying extremely valuable exhibits. Please note, that in many treasure chambers in Europe photography is totally prohibited. People, who are deeply interested in photos of our amazing exhibits usually accept the fee for this option without problems. Hope you understand our reasons... Enjoy your visit of Loreto Prague!
