In the place of today´s square there used to stand a church of the same dedication already in the 14th century. It is said that it used to be wooden. Today´s baroque church was built according to a design of a Prague builder J.J.Aichbauer between the years 1729 - 1736. Although the external look of the church was changed due to three big fires, the interior has kept its united and impressive baroque equipment. St.Lawrence Church has been a shelter for the town´s oldest material relic - a carved polychromic gothic Madonna from the first half of the 15th century. Statues at the church: St.Wenceslas, St. Jan Nepomucký and St.Barbora.
