  • I love cathedrals, you can see the part of the history, touch it and smell it. I like the hallway with jesus sacrifice sculptures on the wall.  more »
  • Wonderful from the outside and inside. Incredible iron gates from the 1600's inside with 3D illusions giving the impression there is more depth. Walk around the whole church including the side altars....  more »
  • Well worth a visit. Some repair work but didnt stop us from enjoying the sights. Will be back again one day  more »

  • Amazing and huge cathedral. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Wunderschöner Dom und abwechslungsreiche Predigten. Ist natürlich zu Libori am schönsten ;-)
  • I can advise only each time to visit a guide in the Cathedral. It is really very interesting.

  • A very impressive structure that everyone should see. "Three-Hare window" remember a visit where to pay

  • The brightness inside is impressive. Worth seeing are also the crypt and especially the cloister.
