Long Description:
All Saints Church
A Gothic "Chapel in the Birch Trees" originally stood in the place where the church is situated. All Saints Church is mentioned as a parish church in 1359 when Jan of Nachod, said of Dubá was granted the right to build a town church. Only a rebuilt section has been preserved from that time. The church became desolated during the Thirty Years' war, particularly after the town fire in 1639. It wasn't repaired until much later. Between 1713 and 1717 it was rebuilt in the baroque style as well as in 1736 when the present aisle was added to the well-preserved chancel. The local chaplaincy was established there in 1780 and from 1786 the building became a parish church once again. In the middle of 19th century all of the interior furnishings were restored. Extensive restorations of the Roman Catholic church were realized in 1905 and in 2008 - 2009.
