Catholic Cathedral of St. Mary Magdalene



The Roman Catholic Cathedral of St. Mary Magdalene is located in the very heart of the Karlovy Vary spa area, in the close proximity of the Hot Spring. The church bears the hallmarks of the High Baroque architecture and it is one of the most important Baroque monuments not only in Karlovy Vary, but in the entire Czech Republic. It was built in 1737 on the site of the former Gothic church. Its interior is decorated with a precious altarpiece, Baroque Eucharist sculptures, Gothic Madonna and other decorations. The church can be viewed during worships, which the church of St. Mary Magdalene conducts every day.
