Saint Egidius Church is the most valuable historical monument, located in the city center. Its origin dates back to the second half of the 13th century. In the distant past, the church was consecrated, as evidenced by the signs of the sacred anointing of the main altar table and wooden crosses on the walls of the church.The church interior is decorated with an exceptional set of medieval paintings. Renaissance bell tower of the church was built in 1592. Near the church stands a sandstone pillar with a Baroque statue of the Immaculate from 1728. Day dedicated to St. Egidius, the patron saint of hunters, forests and beggars is September 1. In the years 1994 – 1998 the nave was restored as was the early Gothic portal at the southern entrance to the church. In 2008, an organ was built in a renovated baroque cabinet of the 18th century.
