Church of the Virgin Mary

The church, built in 1898 under the church of Santa Maria dell 'Orto in Venice, is located in the upper part of the road to Cínovec. In the high southern side there is a bell tower built in 1925 by Rudolf Perner. On the first floor of the tower is loosely little iron bell from 1919 with illegible inscription.

Church of the Virgin Mary was built at the initiative of Count Clary and local people, who hold a public collection at the end of 19th century. The project was undertaken by the Italian architect P. Bigaglio and thus Dubí gained a unique monument, three-aisled basilica in Venetian Gothic style. It works well with building materials (white and red marble) in a very exotic landscape of foothills. One part of the church is the tomb of Clary - Aldrigens. The church is used not only to masses, but also for cultural events. The church is located in the upper part of Dubí near Teplice along the E55 road. It is directly visible from the road, but parking is possible only in the side streets. North of the church (aproximately 150 m far) there is Theresa's Spa.

It is reportedly the most northern building in Venice style in Europe. It is a remarkable rarity of European importance. It is also considered to be a monument of Venetian building style.
