  • Best surviving example of baroque archiztecture in the region, pristine. Interior is wonderful and usually offers instrumental concerts in the evenings.
  • Absolutely gorgeous. Please visit and go in when in Karlovy Vary.
  • Very nice church in the middle of the town. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Seen only from outside on 03.12.2015, it seemed nice and harmonious with its environment.
  • Nice place, lots of baths
