Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul, Brno

(4.5/5 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.

  • Very cute Cathedral prevailing over the old town of Brno. An interesting portal, the opportunity to enter one of the towers. Very cute town. Interesting is illuminated at night.

  • Beautiful Cathedral City symbol. From below you can enjoy in all its glory. After all the steps with a lot of points to enjoy the city from above ... you get to the top. Too bad the exterior isn't enjoyable in all its glory because surrounded by narrow road that doesn't allow a Visual wide for buildings of this size. Not to be missed

  • 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!
