Owner description: 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.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

I sung a choir concert here back in 2011. The interior of the cathedral is absolutely stunning. The detail work on the wood is fantastic. Definitely a must-see in Brno!

“very enjoyable”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

The capitulary and parish church was established by prince Vratislav II in the 2nd half of the 11th century according to the model of the Roman Church of St. Peter and Paul, when the prince began to build his seat at Vyšehrad as a purposeful opposite to Prague Castle. According to a legend, Vratislav supposedly brought 12 baskets of stones for the building’s foundations. That is also related to the founding of the canonry, which was independent on the Prague archbishop and subordinated directly to the pope in Rome. This independence was only abolished in 1763.

The entrance fee was only KC 30
