Trip Planner: Europe / Czech Republic / Moravia / South Moravian Region / Brno / Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul
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. Make Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul part of your personalized Brno itinerary using our Brno trip planner.

It's a beautiful church. The staff was very friendly, they gave us flyers on our language. The entrance to the church is free, the tower is quiet cheap and worth it to climb up.
