Church of St John the Baptist

Sudetes Mountains

This early 18th-century church contains an altarpiece painted by famed baroque artist Michael Willmann.

Should you wish to sample the local waters, the statue-topped automatic pump in a small square near St John’s dispenses free water from Cieplice's springs into whatever container you provide.
