Gothic Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary
The church was built around 1318 AD. Its tower and three-aisles were damaged during Hussite wars, the restauration started after 1452 AD. It was rebuilt in the late Gothic style in the eighties of the 19th century. Bombing of the town in April 1945 severely eroded basement of the church aisle and the tower has been diverged almost 2 metres from its axis since. Notable is the altar on the glass pedestal – an example of the 20th century art.
