  • Church of St. Mary Magdalene, the surviving complexity erection due to the proximity of geyser, a monstrous fire and successive reconstructions, then in 1990 he was returned under the administration of the Crusaders, not accidentally gained the status of a Folk cultural monument of the Czech Republic. The Baroque church in a remarkably good and from the façade, and inside. It is not only a religious cult place, but a true work of architectural and sculptural art, as well as the venue of the organ concerts. In February, 2017. I was lucky enough to visit the time concert "Ave Maria in romantic music" (organ, soprano), and this was perhaps the strongest impression from a three-week stay in Karlovy Vary. Excellent acoustics, poignant music, the power of the body, strong voice of lead singer, singing in some of the most beautiful interiors in colourful murals and statues-everything was wonderful. The only minus is the eerie chill of the Church. Issued blankets, in which many kutalis' students not rescued the situation. When the Hall was full, despite the low season and not the cheapest tickets (390 CZK is approximately 1000 RBL.). Visit worth do

  • The Church is very beautiful with a great body. It hosts concerts of organ music. Minus is that the Church is not heated, unlike the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, and in the winter it is very cold there, distributed blankets do not save.

  • be sure to look inside, better go to organ concert-still and listen! True winter-cold:)
