Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • Nice architecture and a good view.
  • Awesome view. Make sure to go to the top and to see the city. It costs 90Czk to go up there. This is MUST DO IT thing when you visit Brno. :)
  • Prekrasna goticka katedrala s uzansymi vezemi, na ktere se da vystoupat. Je zde i krypta. Zajimavosti je, ze svatostanek je umisten na boku kostela, nikoli v cele.
  • Nive place with great views from towers and walls
  • Nice church.
