Classic small church

Having limited viewing of the interior on this St Vitus church, however you won't miss it on the way out of the town. Exterior is nice and scenic.

A magnificent church, once you got in. Surprised that the church was only opened ten minutes before midnight and that there was not one word of greeting to all the visitors. Other than that, it was worth visiting.

This is a small church just outside the old town square. Worth dropping by to spend 10-15 minutes taking in the life of Christ depicted on a series of illustrations on the wall of the church.

This large and bright cathedral watches over the historic district of Cesky Krumlov. Although somewhat austere, it is worth a short visit.

鎮上主要的教堂就三座,城堡區的那個最醒目,這無庸置疑,但St. Jost Church和St . Vitus就常被搞混,塔尖是尖的才是Church of St. Vitus,塔尖有圓胖的那個是St. Jost Church啦,好吧,不管誰是誰,它們都讓這個小鎮更美麗,誰是誰也不重要了。

I planned far too much time for this stop. The church is really pretty, but it's small, and only takes about 15-20 minutes to walk around and get the full effect. You can pay to light a candle for someone... but the candles aren't even real candles! They're fake with electric wicks. Not much to it but worth a stop... More

I couldn't get to an angle to see the special art work in the chapel as there were services in progress.

You would not miss it as it is higher than other buildings around in the centre of town. Take the front view as well as the back view of the church. Went into the search, impressed by what we saw. For 2 euro , you can make a souvenir of the place.

After finally finding the church open, I was underwhelmed by the interior. They have definitely restored-out any signs of the medieval history. Outside is much better than inside.

After a steep climb from the main town square, we were awarded a visit to this most beautiful church. The stain glass windows, altar, organ and pulpits were very charming. A must when in Cesky Krumlov.
