This neo-Gothic cathedral is famous for the bells that always ring noon at 11 A.M., a tradition that dates back to a 1645 siege by the Swedes.

This is a wonderful example of a Gothic cathedral which is set high above the town with wonderful views. It is known locally as Petrov . It contains wonderful works of art and a beautifully decorated alter. I must admit to having a interest in the cathedral as I was married here in 1973.

Walking through around 70 stairs to reach the top of Cathedral, fantastic view and shots of Brno. Gentle woman at small ticket counter after 20 stairs, entry fee is required but reasonable.

This is an excellent example of baroque architecture. It's a pity that photography is not permitted.

Stunning g, like a scene from the movies. Glorious specially if you're a fan of gothic architecture. Inside the beautiful 'vitraže'(stained glass windows) are seen in such beautiful contrast to walls. People are reminded to be quiet inside.

One of the most impressive monuments of central Europe. Its situation is unique, on a hill, looking over the old town. Surrounded by old city walls, guarding charming walks all the way down. Splendid stained glass. We were lucky to witness a wedding ceremony in the church, very touching. Beautiful architectural gothic details both outside and inside. We visited the... More

absolutely nice place in Brno, love it. When I manage to visit this lovely reconstructed city, I am going there everytime. Moravia is very interesting as such and full of lovely landscapes as well, love this part of Czechia.

Peter and Paul Cathedral in the city of Brno is perhaps the main landmark of the city. It is from afar. There is applied neo-Gothic architectural style. (Both my fotogrfie are from a moving express train.)

Stained glass and interior ornamentation of the cathedral are spectacular. It has great steeples and is most impressive

The Cathedral has a beautifully refurbished interior, with beautiful art, and a very calm atmosphere. We were alone and the calm of the place really make it special. I have been to hundreds of Cathedrals but this is special. You can also go up into the towers and experience beautiful views of Brno and the surrounding areas. They also have... More
