A NATIONAL CULTURAL MONUMENT

kostel-boziho-telaOriginally a Gothic church, the building was destroyed in the 19th century. After its restoration, the temple contrasts with the region's rural Bohemian religious architecture. It consists of a rectangular chancel and a larger rectangular nave, a square tower and narrow windows.

From 2005, the church is under the administration of the Roman Catholic Parish in Cologne.

Nowadays, the Corpus Christi Church is registered in the Central List of Cultural Monuments in the Czech Republic.
