St. Michael's Church dominates the center of the city with its massive Gothic silhouette and offers encompassing views from its 76 m (250 ft) clock tower. This 15th-century Roman Catholic church was built partially from donations from the townspeople. On the western portal notice the three coats of arms that represent Sigismund as King of Hungary, King of Bohemia, and Holy Roman Emperor.

  • My wife taught at the university there for five years and I always enjoyed visiting this beautiful church. They also have excellent guides available to help one understand the history and significance of internal architectural details. It is well worth having one of these experts with you on a visit. Do not miss the opportunity to visit this historic building. It is one of the highlights of this interesting city. One question, I do not remember is a tip was expected but understand that these volunteers earn little money in their country and take that into consideration when you visit.
  • It's massive and beautiful inside and a very cool temperature when it's hot outside.
  • Incredible place, it really gives the medieval vibe, conjuncted with an almost spiritual experience. An absolute must-see.
