The square in front of it has a Marian column from the year 1719. The church is adjacent to a former Augustinian monastery with provostry, and in this complex there is the Handke Gallery, where the works of this famous Baroque artist are on display. Galerie Šternberk has shows of contemporary art. If you need to take a break from culture and sight-seeing, there is a town swimming pool with toboggan, a children's wading pool, and a sporting field with a living chessboard on which you may become a chess figure yourself. At night, try night swimming. Šternberk Cultural Summer has regular events. Every June there is the annual Ecce Homo European Uphill Motor Championship and in September an antique car race.
