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.

  • Beautiful, well kept, well worth a visit. Maybe internally don't expect to visit the Sistine Chapel, but has a very particular construction!

  • One of the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen. Beautiful design, and location. Really worth it to enter and also on the terrace next to the Cathedral. The Cathedral itself is very beautiful and majestic. Brno is a little-appreciated tourist city.

  • It is just amazingly beautiful. Inside you can feel peaceful for real. I used google maps to get there, and it was very easy. The city center itself is very good for walking, you can almost do everything walking, no need for taxis or public transportation. Nearby, you'll be able to find more religious places full of history.
  • Beautiful outside and conveniently located near the train station. Great views of the city and it is next to the outdoor market. Worth a look.
  • Went up to the tower which's got a great view of the whole city.
  • 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
  • When I was there on December, there were some renovations going on. When I reached the top, I wasn't able to see the view of the city center, but only the view outside the city.
