Probably prettier by day
Nov. 2021
Situated in the historic center of Cesky Krumlov, the location of this church is one of its better qualities. It's very peaceful inside (or at least it was when we went, as we were the only ones there--the benefit of visiting in low season), and it's probably prettier on a sunny day (we went in the evening).

Nice
Aug. 2021
The church is in a lovely position, near the main square. It is worthwhile to visit it because it is in Cesky Krumlov's center but not for its architecture. Inside, it is nice but nothing special.

Wonderful church above the Vltava
Jan. 2020 • Family
One of the most famous buildings in Cesky Krumlov is located on a hill above the Vltava in the historic center of the city. It offers a beautiful view from the bridge over the Vltava. The temple is included in the list of UNESCO sites in the Czech Republic and is a national cultural monument of the Czech Republic.

Gorgeous town

Baroque loveliness. One doesn't need to be Catholic or religious to appreciate this church. Historically beautiful.

Worth visiting
Nov. 2019
This church is located just off the main square. It is quite small but still worth visiting. It originally opened in the early 1300s. It has been modified several times through the centuries. It has some lovely statues and frescoes. You can even light a candle here if you are so inclined.

Very nice church - worth a quick stop
Aug. 2019
We stopped in this church during our recent visit to Cesky Krumlov. The inside is ornate and interesting, but relatively small. You can make a quick stop here as the church is centrally located. It is worth going. There is no fee to enter.

Quite impressive...
Oct. 2019 • Couples
Architecture is quite a sight, very attractive exterior, but inside is a bit dark...though there are some intricate sculptures and paintings. Worth a quick visit.
