not much to add. Another european town, another beautiful cathedral. As many as I have seen, it still never fails to impress. Hard to miss. Right in the old town.

Main cathedral in the city, very important historical place for this part of the country. Every day at 11 a.m. the bell rings as a memory of a legendary city defence: in 1645 after four months of confrontation with the Swedish army, the army commanders promised to leave the city if Swedes fail to break into the city by noon. The bells rang one hour earlier that since then 11 a.m. is a special time for Brno.

Beautiful gothic architecture, visible from all over the city. The interior is somehow on a different key but still very interesting, with some beautiful stain glasses and very interesting pieces of furniture.

Lovely interior with stunning stained glass. Also worth taking the 100 or so steps up to the top of the tower for a small fee. It gives you great views over the city. Just try not to be there on the hour as the bells bong loudly above your head at that time! And they seem to have a lot of weddings there at weekends so you may need to pick your moment to pop inside

While this cathedral is quite plain compared to most european cathedrals it has an interesting place in history. The cathedral itself is well maintained and the view from the tower of city is beautiful. Just be warned, you walk right underneath the bells and if they happen to go off when you are there your ears may be ringing for quite a while! Perhaps what I enjoyed the most however was the large park that winds around the entire cathedral that offers beautiful views of the city and ample places to sit and reflect.

Cathedral is a monumental building in the city center and the real city landmark. There are three visiting areas. The crypt, towers & treasury, and finally the main part of the church. Good for visit. Cathedral is in the city center, which is nicely renovated and provides you with the spirit of the old town. Enjoy.

Beautiful cathedral which dominates the Brno skyline. Inside is very beautiful and well worth a (respectful) visit inside - even for the non-religious like me!

Surprisingly simple internal decor. Very nice view on the city from the courtyard, since the church is on a hill.
