Church of St. Vitus, Cesky Krumlov

(4.3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Church of St. Vitus dominates the town with its Neo-Gothic tower, which symbolizes the might of the holy Christendom. The 15th-century church has been remodeled many times. The interior of the church is predominantly Neo-Gothic, with a 16th-century baptismal fountain adorned with red marble columns and three Baroque confession booths in the rear. Notice the paintings depicting the coronations of the Virgin Mary and St. Vitus above the Early Baroque high altar. The chapel, adjacent to the left nave, holds the hearts of several members of the Schwarzenberg family, the red marble gravestones of Rosenbergs, and a portion of St. John of Nepomuk's elbow bone in a silver reliquary.
