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.

Spent a wonderful day in Cesky Kromlov and visited this church. It was up many steps but there was a bannister along the way. It was a relief to be in the cool interior. Since this is a Roman Catholic Church women are required to...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.
