Originally from the 13. century, but it was rebuilt in the 17. century. From 1631 to 1633 the Czech crown was kept here.

If you are in Ceske Budejovice, St Nicholas's Cathedral is a must. I do not know much about architecture, but I loved it. It's walls are not as over-painted as the ones of an orthodox church's or as spartan as a Catholic church's but it is simple yet impressive. The paintings are lovely and create a peaceful atmosphere.

WOW! Wonderful church in a great setting and it is so beautiful inside. We were lucky to see inside, when we returned on the Sunday morning it was closed.

We very nearly missed the most beautiful piece of architecture in the whole of Prague. This beautiful cathedral was tucked away with little street appeal but once ensconced within the bowels of this Church, the real world of the tourist hustle and bustle tends to just dissipate. A very ornate and totally exquisite, awe inspiring church that totally took our breath away and brought tears to our eyes. Amazing, unassuming and hidden piece of art and architecture. Totally inspiring!

This is nice example of gentle and sensitive renovation. This great baroque church look now very fresh, bright, friendly and it most probably look just as it look when was freshly build up long rime ago....there are so many similar churches from 15-16 Centhury in Czech Republic, in fact in every village one could find nice example, living gallery or so, but many are preserved in old baroque style, highly deecorated, large painting, sometime quite dark....here at St. Nicholas they have spent some money with reconstruction and lighting is very nice, seats are new and organ sounds just wonderful, paintings are freshly touched and church lift up spirit of tired pilgrim a lot. Well done ! Make sure to come in, sit and calm your self and dont worry to have word with God too...
