#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.
