Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul, Brno
(4.5/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • The Cathedral of Brno invites you on the Hill in the middle of the city to a few quiet minutes. Whenever I come from Vienna this dominant building greeted me from afar.

  • The only point to have a walk in the city center. If you are in Brno isnt possible to dont go there. 
  • Very nice architecture. Free to walk around inside. No photography inside. Very central in city with other attractions nearby.

  • 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!
