Very nice free church. There is a lady uo front who sells guidebooks for the church. Feel free to purchase as it helps the church, but it's not required to enter and take a look. (Like if this helped)
More impressive outside, from across the river, than nearby or inside. A lovely building but dwarfed, literally and in interest, by the Cesky Krumlov Castle.
Beautiful. Loved being woken up by the bells this morning
Much more amazing and beautiful than the castle. This place must be seen while you are in the city visiting.
