Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul, Brno

4.6
Climb to the top of the bell towers of Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul, which always ring at 11 a.m. rather than noon as a nod to a tale of subterfuge during the Thirty Years' War. Stone balconies that are nearly 84 m (276 ft) high offer views over the city. The cathedral was erected on the site of a much earlier Romanesque chapel in 1777. Its Neo-Gothic facade is the work of 20th-century architect August Kirstein. Look for a quotation from Matthew's gospel written above the main entrance, which invites all hardworking people to find peace inside the church. The Baroque interior is complemented with high ceilings and stained-glass windows. The cathedral also features a medieval crypt.

  • Inspires respect and awe, beautiful and majestic. Well worth a visit. Located in the old town, can be seen from many points of the city.

  • Nice looking cathedral, with interesting architecture. It's really impressive from the inside. It's easy to access, so it's definitely worth seeing.  more »
  • The Cathedral is located in the historical centre of Brno and very good view if you are in 2 -3 blocks. As in most cathedrals in his entrance free. But inside there is not anything special. Of course, this is not a reason to pass by. We are pleased to have gone inside and lit candles. Candles in contrast to Russian churches apart no one sells. You yourself take the amount needed and leave usually how many you think reasonable. Sometimes prices, but no one of course is not looking beyond that how much you omitted in the case of coins. But the most interesting thing in the Cathedral is able to climb the Tower, though it would take a ticket. But the rise of the old tower is interesting, especially to look at the city from a height. I can't say that it's very interesting. In Brno is not very many sights, but still this is perhaps the most interesting emotions from visiting Brno. We're lucky people in August was not a lot and not had to wait for the queue to the balcony.

  • Amazing cathedral. Inside and outside as well. Symbol of the town of Brno. Must see if you spend even one day in this nice little town
  • The Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul is located in the centre of Brno. It looks nice from the outside and is one of the symbols of the town.
  • The exterior of the cathedral is amazing, the inside perhaps a little less so. It's definitely worth going up to the top to get beautiful views over the city but the tiny side entrance for this means it's easily missed! Costs little over £1 to see the treasury (couple of small rooms with some items belonging to the cathedral) then walk up the stairs to the bell towers and balconies. Best at sunset in my opinion : )
  • Cathedral that is the symbol of the city. If will be approaching Brno from Bratislava, you can see the Cathedral kilometers away. And if you are lucky, wait for choirs to sing. The acoustic is just humbling. Magical place.
  • nice place, nice park and city view around
