The Church of St. Vitus was built before 1345 and modified several times. It sits above the town historic center. Beautiful interior with many windows and only a few people there when we visited; peaceful and quiet. Baroque organ is impressive.

This lovely gothic church up from the old square is worth seeing. Unfortunately access to the side altars is limited but we were able to see the beautiful baroque organ and view the main altar from afar! Spectacles are necessary to pick out the saints!...More

The Church of St. Vitus is open daily and admission is free. Cannot remember the hours, but we went during the day. Takes about 15- 20 minutes to view.

We were not subjected to a fee, but I believe I left a donation as I was leaving the church. It was a donation, not a mandatory fee.
