If you are in the Old Town area or going to the castle you will likely walk right by this cathedral so you might as well pop in, right? The interior is stunning, packing a lot into a quaint church!

The cathedral deserves a visit by anyone interested in art or architecture. The two large sculpted exterior doors are very impressive and the interior ceilings are beautiful (see photos). And admission is free!

A really lovely small Cathedral with not an inch not painted. What really made it special was the explanation of the paintings and the working of the Cathedral that was given to us by a charming man.

The Cathedral itself is not very big and really not extraordinary – quite beautiful outside and inside with pleasing typical décor of the period. The most outstanding part is modern doors that are masterpiece themselves, so do take some time for their proper observation.
