Entrance is free and it is was very silent and serene during our visit. The inside is fairly dark, but it creates authentic atmosphere on how it must have felt when it was build. Take great pictures from the back of the church.

St Vitus church is small and does not offer much to see. It is in the large public square so take a few minutes and see for yourself

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.
