The church appears to have been converted to a wax museum now. The images concentrate on famous composers, writers and poets who have visited the town "back in the day" to take the waters. Don't expect to see David Beckham or Lady Gaga.

Not worth seeing at all. The wax statues are poor. The church used to be very nice but lost its beauty.

This church looks very interesting in the sun. Also, its architecture is a little unusual for this town, as for me ))

This is an old church very beautiful from outside. The church is open every day and has discarded wax figures of famous people. Make sure you are trying to guess who they are and then read the name tag. It was very funny that fax...More

I stumbled across this whilst wandering around and my god....what a gem! Highly recommend this for sheet hilarity, possibly made better after a liquid lunch. Will be sure to visit again and take everyone I know there. Pure fun!

This display is simply the funniest thing you can see in the Czech Republic. Just don't take it too seriously. My top tip is to not look at the name tags of the wax figures and to try and guess who they are. My sides...More

I am not sure this is everyone's cup of tea but it seemed to be mine. This is an old church full of discarded (and quite honestly bad) waxwork figures of famous people. The wax works take some time to figure out who some of...More
