4.4
#2 of 10 in Historic Sites in Karlovy Vary
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.

  • Organ concert is held once a week, on Tuesday. Tickets cost €16, ticket sales begin at the Temple from 12:00 on the day of the concert. In March it was cool enough, but in the temple issue blankets, they save. The acoustics are excellent, the concert remained are very happy. Tickets can be booked online, and buy some hotels

  • An interesting temple in March, still very cool and quite empty. Constantly there are concerts, really liked Mother Teresa statues have a Savior.

  • Nice Catholic church, beautiful architecture, photos were not allowed at the inside of the church when i was visited it.
  • Best surviving example of baroque archiztecture in the region, pristine. Interior is wonderful and usually offers instrumental concerts in the evenings.
  • Very nice church in the middle of the town. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Absolutely gorgeous. Please visit and go in when in Karlovy Vary.
  • for nice photos
