Long Description:

Gothic Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary (Kostel Nanebevzetí Panny Marie), the parochial church of Slavonice Roman Catholic parish, creates together with its Renaissance belfry architectural dominant of the town historic centre.

Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary is three-aisle basilical structure with presbytery in two fields of church's cross-vault and with pentagonal enclosing. South-oriented chapel of the Virgin Mary, built up in the second half of the 14th century, is interesting also thanks to well preserved Gothic frescoes. The nave, originally with flat ceiling, was covered by a Gothic cross-vault in the 15th century. The church's choir comes from the 17th century, and in early 18th century were added two Baroque chapels (St. Anthony and Our Lady of the Sorrows). The Renaissance bell-tower was built at place of former sacristy in 1502.
