It's a must see sight. From it's interesting history to the stunning interior as well as external architecture and grounds around the church.

Nice church but nothing special compared to many others (have a bit of church-fatigue after a few weeks' holiday in Europe).

Within walking distance from the old town centre, i think this old church is underrated. Its typical gothic church, but i found it very charming.

There is a St. Vitus cathedral in Prague but this church is just as good if not better. It has an amazing interior which is worth checking out. It was weird all tourists kept walking by and did not peek inside which has all the cool interior.

The Church of St. Vitus is beautiful with great detail taken in creating the altar. It is the center point as the stained glass windows are beautiful but simple in design. Their beauty is in their sheer size. The organs in the church are also mesmerizing. If you can go on a day to hear them you are lucky.

This church is a focal point for the town(after the castle). The ornate iconography, and other paintings, especially the stations of the cross, are stunning. In this part of the world it is easy to get blasé about 'another' church, but give this place a try.

Nice church with that typical gothic, baroque look. No pictures allowed. It is very beautiful. It is something that you should spend a few minutes in when in Cesky Krumlov.
