Caula with late medieval embroidery
Lown of the church St. Peter and Alexander

The baroque casula (prists vestment) is decorated by an embroidery of the early 15th century, depicting Christ, St. Mary, various saints and a royal eagle. The embroidery was so valuable, that it was removed form the vestment when this had to be replaced and was mounted on a baroque casula.
