Varnsdorf − Church of St. Peter and Paul

This Baroque church, built in 1766–1776 with late Baroque decoration from 1777, is situated on the square in Varnsdorf and is the oldest church in the town. It is worth checking out the ceiling frescos, the pulpit and the image of the Madonna by František Tkadlík. The church is furnished in the Rococo and Classicist styles. In 1830 it hosted the premiere of Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis. A commemorative plaque was installed by the main entrance in honour of this event.
