Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul, Brno

(4.6/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Climb to the top of the bell towers of Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul, which always ring at 11 a.m. rather than noon as a nod to a tale of subterfuge during the Thirty Years' War. Stone balconies that are nearly 84 m (276 ft) high offer views over the city. The cathedral was erected on the site of a much earlier Romanesque chapel in 1777. Its Neo-Gothic facade is the work of 20th-century architect August Kirstein. Look for a quotation from Matthew's gospel written above the main entrance, which invites all hardworking people to find peace inside the church. The Baroque interior is complemented with high ceilings and stained-glass windows. The cathedral also features a medieval crypt.

  • St. Martin's Cathedral. Peter and Paul boasts two slender towers. Lightly covered in this meeting have looked to the city of Brno. Inside the temple, we can admire the altar made of artificial marble (marble is part of the sole right of the altar, and left it in front of the main altar). Beautiful are the sculptures of the Apostles on the main altar.

  • Surely it should be vyšliapať up at the Tower, the view is well worth it!!! The entrance fee may be paid in cash only, possible to pay in euros.

  • The first thing that comes to mind when you see this architectural structure is "is it really a miracle of creation of human hands?". The Cathedral is so great that all the words are irrelevant here. The boom towers in neo-Gothic style though relate to the sky ... Impressions an incredible, one of the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen in my life! So, to the Czech Republic travels to advise to visit!) From Prague to go two hours, very comfortable buses RagioJet, ticket costs about 9 euros, departure from the station Florenc bus station, it is better to buy tickets back and forth in advance.

  • The cathedral has real stunning architectural features. Beautiful vitrage! Even the stroll to the cathedral is lovely and calm.
  • The outside architecture is impressive, and is far more interesting than the interior. There is a crypt here of mummified priests.
  • Place for peace and tranquility. Must visit if you are in Brno!
  • Wonderful architecture. Awesome view!!
  • The views of the beautiful surrounding square. The cathedral has an incredible amount of space, so impressive!
