Long Description:
Kostel sv.Víta patril k františkánskému klášteru, založenému roku 1455. Po vypálení kláštera roku 1468 byl prestaven v pozdne gotickém stylu. Roku 1546 byli mniši protestantskými obyvateli mesta z kláštera vyhnáni a do roku 1673 byl klášter s kostelem pustý. Poté zde nakrátko klášter fungoval znovu, nicméne velmi brzo byl zrušen a jeho budovy, krome kostela byly zboreny. V roce 1785 byl kostel zrušen a v roce 1790 predán do správy mesta. Pozdeji byl znovu vysvecen a používán k bohoslužbám.
