Church of St. Vitus, Cesky Krumlov

Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
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.

  • The church is in a lovely position, near the main square. It is worthwhile to visit it because it is in Cesky Krumlov's center but not for its architecture. Inside, it is nice but nothing special.  more »

  • inside the town and near the main square lies this lovely church with gothic design and very well maintained.  more »
  • A really cute church that is worth visiting if you’re in the area. It’s as beautiful from the inside as it is from the outside. I believe the photos speak for themselves. One little funny note was the electronic candle coin machine. :-)
  • The church sits on a mound near the Vltava River and is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Ceský Krumlov. This building is about 1340, built with three ships. On one side there is a curiously built tower decorated with small Romanesque windows at the bottom and top with a neo-Gothic style built much later, also as it rises in height it goes from square to octagonal.
  • This place is like a castle or cathedral in a fairy tale. If you have a plan to pass by this city from or to Prague, staying a night isn't that bad idea. For other cases? I can't see the value on staying a night.
  • The entrance is free, prominent attractions in cesky Krumlov, old cathedral and very cool to be in and escape sun :)
  • awesomeness! 🤩👌😍
