Church of St. Vitus, Cesky Krumlov
(4.2/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • Visit it on the outside because it was closed (closed 4 pm), very cute Gothic facade, nestled on the Bank of the River, in a town where everything is stories...

  • Initially built as a small church at the beginning of the years 1300 and the need of a main temple to house the growing population, began the reconstruction which lasted almost 100 years and is basically as it is today. Having just changed the tower which is one of the symbols seen throughout most of rescente construction Český end 19 century in 1894. With Neo Gothic style, the Interior houses many works of art, Baroque paintings that portray Christianity, a magnificent altar and stained glass Windows.

  • This large and bright cathedral watches over the historic district of Cesky Krumlov. Although somewhat austere, it is worth a short visit.
