In the centre of the town there´s a wonderful late gothic church whose history dates back to the 13th century. Except for wonderful architecture and lots of interesting artifacts there´s also a sculpture of famous Radouit de Souche, the general who protected the town against the Swedish troups.

Easy to find & well worth seeing. Once where people wee buried it has been excavated and the skulls & bone are 'nicely' arranged.

Peace and quiet. Not the biggest one but impressive. Gothic architecture, near to the centre of Brno.

Beautiful and spacy gothic interiors, not spoiled by too many baroque additions. Worth seeing. If you wish to participate in the mass - services are held in hours convenient for travelers.

We have visited this church before as tourists. This time we got to watch some of our Czech friends get married. The setting was wonderful.

We only paid a short visit to this church to get an amusing photo of a small guy baring his butt at the cathedral. On the way we passed a building whose façade featured four atlas figures (The House of the Four Mamlases) which is also worth a look.

I don't think I have never seen a church with so much sunlight inside. On the outside you can search the man showing his rear end, and then descend to the second largest ossuary in Europe.
