Truly beautiful facade with a lot of ornaments and statues. the entrance portal is worth a closer look. The interior is great, but not as special as I expected.

From the outside, it looks just like the St. Wenceslas Cathedral in Prague. The inside is beautifully decorated. Be sure to see the shrine with relics of St.John Sarkander, who was canonized by Pope John Paul II beside one of the pillars.
