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.

  • Inside we have not visited, but outside the Cathedral very grandly looks, there is an observation deck near the entrance.

  • Awesome and beautiful Cathedral. The decoration is very impressive. You can sit on the benches contemplating the beauty of this place. Too bad for visitors is available at least a large part of the fenced rope. You cannot photograph, but our eyes tours photographed

  • Looks really great Church as seen from the river-side, while is surprising and compact. No glitz in the stained-glass Windows are visible, extremely simple. To linger because there is no heating during cold, the altar is only special because it seems to be.
