Beautiful church

It's nr 1 in Brno for a reason, it's beautiful. Make sure to go up to the top of the tower for a great panorama of Prague.

It was a little difficult to reach the cathedral (too many stairs and walking) but it was worth going. Very beautiful place inside and outside. Don't confuse the main entrance to the cathedral with a small entrace on the other side which goes to some place like a museum and you have to pay to get there. To get into... More

I have not entered the interior due to the church services. BUt I can tell the church tower is exceptional. A "must-go" spot for every tourist. A treasure room is also there.

The Basilica built in 1777 is situated on Petrov Hill, it has a beautiful interior, a Romanesque Gothic crypt and a must see view of Brno from the tower. The noon bell rings daily at 11.00am as rememberance to the Swedish seige legend during the 30 years war

Beautiful and well preserved. The church may not be impressive in size yet it is one of the few surviving buildings from medieval times. Stain glass is amazing and survived WWII destruction as well as Communist neglect.

It is a nice cathedral, but it really isn't that spectacular. The "climb" to the view point is quite short and it only give you a view of one side of the city, albeit the prettier side. It seems to be one of the highest view points, so maybe that is why it is #1...

The Cathedral itself is beautiful, but the location do not give you ability to see it fully, one side is on square, but the other side right next to some buildings and narrow way goes around it and you cant see all its beauty

This beautiful, small, gothic cathedral is in the old town of Brno and it is worth paying the extra to climb its towers for the view over the city.
