4.5
#3 of 14 in Historic Sites in Karlovy Vary Region
Church of St. Mary Magdalene is home to the tabernacle--a box in which the holy bread and wine are kept--and was declared a National Cultural Monument in 2010. Visit to see a richly decorated 18th-century altar, Baroque Eucharist sculptures, and a Gothic Madonna inside one of the most important Czech High Baroque monuments. Take a tour to learn more about the altar of the Holy Sepulchre, which is made from sinter and aragonite; biblical scenes of Gethsemane Garden and Calvary; Baroque church foundations; and a geological display. A charnel house with the skeletal remains from the former cemetery is included on the tour.

    This is a beauiful church. It was built in the 18. century and it is one of the nicest baroque church in entire Czech Republic.  more »

    In an elliptical shape applied high-Baroque church, cluttered, Yes, but still pretty and worth a visit.

    The Church is open for visitation, but your typical Baroque architecture contrasts with the rest of the city.

    Best surviving example of baroque archiztecture in the region, pristine. Interior is wonderful and usually offers instrumental concerts in the evenings.
