This lovely church was built to replace a burnt down church in 1517 and finished in 1538. The main features are the three wooden altars which were carved by Jeronym Kohl in 1701-1706. A lady told us the altars were supposed to be covered in...More

Nice view from the top, well-maintained interior and a beautiful wooden altar. A must see when you visit the city, but you should visit the other old churches too

This is the most beautiful historical architecture in Louny. The church has the largest wooden altar in central Europe and it's beautifully carved. Go to the church tower to have a nice view of the city.

This late Gothic church with rather unusual pyramid-shaped turrets has also interesting interior dominate by very unusual wood-carved main altar. The tower (entry fee of 20Kc, some £0.80) is certainly well worth visiting. Going up the winding stairwell you pass the the belfry and then...More
