Kostel Nanebevzetí Panny Marie (Church of the Ascension of Our Lady)

Kostel Nanebevzetí Panny Marie (Church of the Ascension of Our Lady) Review

Dating from the second half of the 14th century, this church and its tower are the other dominating features of the city's skyline. It's a Gothic triple-nave church with some interesting elements, including a Gothic Madonna from the beginning of the 15th century. By coincidence, the church straddles the 15th meridian, and you'll see a line marking the point. The city tower is also open for those wishing to scale 157 steps for an extensive view of the surrounding area.
