This Gothid style church is simple yet beautiful. It has been recently renovated and it e looks brand new on the inside with the stone all cleaned up. A worthwhile stop while walking through old town.

The loveliest church in Brno and it easily can be anyone's most favourite in town. Great atmosphere and tranquility all over.

Beautiful 16th century Gothic church where the believers kept a positive faith: not one of darkness and fear for hell, but one of lightness and hope of going to heaven. Inside it feels like you are lifted up as bright rays of sun fall unhindered...More

It is very nice church in the city, one of the oldest ones with lovely interior. It is located close to the main square and below it, there is an ossuary you may visit too.

Nice church but small when compared to other churches you find around Prague. Was being used when we were there so only looked through front door.

St Jacobs was one of many churches we visited in Brno. Well worth it for the stunning architecture. And the location is gorgeous.

We saw a few churches is Brno, we liked Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul church more than this one. However it's still worth visiting for the cheeky buttock revealing man on the side of the church. It has an interesting story too!

No, churches do not need any air conditioning. Even in the hottest summer the temperature in our churches is very pleasant.
