It was a short visit compare to other churches seen, and to breath a spiritual atmosphere, soothing little bit in our daily pace, between our lunch and moving to visit the business event near... We visited the church only shortly, quietly and took a few photographs...

Kostel svatého Jakuba Staršího ("Church of St. James the Elder") is a late gothic church in Brno old town. The interior in white is quite impressive, and it's well worth a visit.
Under the church there is an ossuary, the second biggest in Europe after the Catacombs of Paris, that I could not visit, since it is closed on Mondays.

One church where the interior was far more impressive than the exterior. Well-lit and spacious. Enjoyed photographing.

The interior is awesome, the wooden works are beautiful and the church has a high ceiling which contains beautiful paintings and statues. It is a must visit.

Called in here as it is very close to the old town and Freedom Square. Less ornate than the Cathedral but still worthwhile a visit.

it is a paradise for people who like climbing old towers. You can see many interesting buildings from the birds’ perspective.

This is a must to visit. The church is high and the interior is splendid. The wooden organ and all the wooden works are extremely nice.

Interesting building which is worth exploring. There is no stained glass in the windows, which allows more light in, and as the 'ceiling' is so very high, it adds to that impression.
In superb condition, with wonderful paintings and I would encourage people to visit

Where else can you be granted permission to grab the clapper of the bell and give it a good swing? Where else can you have such an animated tour guide. A man so thrilled to show and explain the tower, bell, and view afforded? Plus there is the second largest ossuary in Europe beneath the church Seems one ticket gets you admission to both ossuary and tower.

Nice view. Great tour guide. Impossibly steep stair case. Good fun.
