Where the Czech...? #102

Does anybody know which town these buildings belong to?

Great picture, seldom do you see three different types of architecture in one frame. A clue would help : )

I am enjoying the Monday videos!

OK, but small hints first...

The renaissance building to the right of the photo is the town hall and the white baroque tower belongs to a Jesuit church...

Gotta be Klatovy on the edge of the Sumava

Klatovy it is. Well done Brett!

For anyone thinking of visiting Klatovy, the white tower in the picture belongs to the Jesuit church beneath which rest the mummified bodies of monks and aristocrats from the 17th Century.

The tall tower connected to the town hall can be climbed for the views, the Church of the Nativity across town is probably Klatovy's most notable work of architecture and one of the towers of the old town walls is now a very nice teahouse.
