Church of St. Vitus, Cesky Krumlov

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.

  • Although it is a historic building it is very modest from outside. Inside the paintings are bery special and history flows from the walls windows and ceiling of the church.  more »
  • The monumental building, towering above the city and visible from any point of the city. The best view from the river. You can take wonderful photos and relax by the water.

  • For tourists who know the history of Český Krumlov, this Cathedral is a separate interest. In the Cathedral is an ancient body, whose history is interesting. But the highlight of the Cathedral is certainly the side chapel, which buried the Princess Eleonora Schwarzenberg, which made for more than any other of his Come, but in the history is preserved, as a vampire Queen! If you go in Krumlov "prepared a tourist", visiting the Cathedral will be a must-see destination for visitors.

  • More impressive outside, from across the river, than nearby or inside. A lovely building but dwarfed, literally and in interest, by the Cesky Krumlov Castle.
  • Much more amazing and beautiful than the castle. This place must be seen while you are in the city visiting.
  • Worth to see
  • Cesky Krumlov has spectacular vistas at every turn. St. Vitus Church exhibits a plethora of architectural styles, having been constructed over five centuries.
  • did not visit from inisde, lovely church in this crowded medieval town
