Long Description:

The Church of St. Anne is a Baroque building from 1670-1672. Orders for its construction came from the wife of Count Jan Friedrich von Trautmannsdorf, Marie Anna née Berka of Dubá and Lípa.

The church was altered at the end of the 18th century (windows to the presbytery, entrance lobby in 1800) and restored in 1872. The preserved decoration of the church is partially original and dates from the 1770's (side altar). Today's altar dates from 1795 (the picture of St. Anne was painted by the Kutna Hora painter J. Colic). The church is under complete reconstruction.
