Tired of the city? Walk up the hill and enjoy the peace and quiet inside this monumental cathedral. Great for escaping the heat in the summer! Had a chance to hear amateur group singing some choral music he other day... just splendid, the acoustics is amazing!

Nice church to spend some time looking all the draws and images inside. There's a small room where you can pray quietly.

I was interested in the Swedish connection (the siege in 1645 during the 30-year war). Fantastic stained glass windows.

Probably the oldest cathedral in Brno, the foundation dates back to 12th century. A wonderful example of late gothic style. The walk around with your head bend up is something unforgattable. Going inside even more unforgattable. The view from the spire is breathtaking and you can see the wonderful architecture of the city from the bird´s view.

One of the best places to visit in Brno, along with the Spilberk castle. You can see the cathedral from the castle and go there on foot, because it is not very far. Although it is necessary to go up, it is worth it, because the cathedral is very beautiful and the view of the city is great.

City tour of Brno cannot be complete without visiting its cathedral. Up in Petrin hill, it is the main feature of the town skyline. Entry is free, but for a small free you can climb the bell tower and have some pretty nice views of Brno.

Our visit in Brno happened on a cold, wet morning, our first stop was the church of St. Peter and Paul, not very big but beautiful with the usual steeple and knaves. Its dark façade shows different kind of artistry, the inside is also beautiful but not as compelling and rich as some of the other European churches.

Loved the high ceilings and the stained windows. Lots of stairs to climb to get to the Cathedral if you approach it from one side which we did - then you find out as you're leaving that there's another way out which is so much simpler and easy to access!

Their location is good (good views) but, we didn't find them particularly beautiful. St John's, in town, is much more impressive.
