Church: Roman Catholic, Nový Jičín parish

The church stands in close proximity to the Baroque chateau. The ceremonial laying of the foundation stone took place on 27 August 1810. Originally, the church did not have 30-metre high towers as it is today. The towers were not added until 1863. The chronicle records that their spikes were at the level of the pavement of the Nový Jičín square. In front of the church, a Baroque statue of a saint from the first half of the 18th century stands on a high prismatic pedestal.
