"St. Nicholas Church Katedrala svateho Mokulase, the cathedral of the Catholic Diocese of České Budějovice, is located at the northeast corner of Przemisl Otoka II Square, adjacent to the landmark Black Tower. It was built as an altar around 1297, but due to funding and war, the church has not been completed, and the main building was only completed in the middle of the 14th century. The main body of the church was built in the 14th century and was destroyed by fire in 1641. What you see now is a reconstructed Baroque church. There are three statues in the niche of the main entrance, namely Saint Mikulas, Saint Winsler, and Saint Auridin. In front of the cathedral in the shadow of the tower is a statue of John Ilsik Jan Valerian Jirsik, who is said to be the first archbishop of the church. The bell tower in front of the church has another famous name. It is called the Black Tower. The tower is 72 meters high. It is a famous tower in Budejovice. It was built in the 16th century. The bell tower is named after its dark brown and black appearance. , There is a golden clock on the square tower, which can be seen from a long distance. In addition to telling the time, it was used as a watchtower for fires throughout the city. From downstairs, you can enter through a small door and circle upstairs. Follow the spiral staircase in the tower to the observation deck on the top floor. In the early morning or in the sunset, the sky is soft and transparent, and flocks of pigeons flutter across the city. The quiet and peaceful atmosphere of the town is intoxicating."
