Well worth a look. Yes, there are many beautiful churches across Europe. But this one is right up there.

“very enjoyable”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

The capitulary and parish church was established by prince Vratislav II in the 2nd half of the 11th century according to the model of the Roman Church of St. Peter and Paul, when the prince began to build his seat at Vyšehrad as a purposeful opposite to Prague Castle. According to a legend, Vratislav supposedly brought 12 baskets of stones for the building’s foundations. That is also related to the founding of the canonry, which was independent on the Prague archbishop and subordinated directly to the pope in Rome. This independence was only abolished in 1763.

The entrance fee was only KC 30

“Beautiful and atmospheric cathedral”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Our visit to the cathedral in Brno was enhanced by the fact that the organist was rehearsing when we arrived. Even without that, I am glad we made the decision to pedal and push our bikes up the hill. The effort was well rewarded.

The church is more simply decorated than many we have seen in Moravia. That said, the windows behind the altar are gorgeous and the stations of the Cross most moving.

I would recommend a visit.

“when looking at Brno, this will be the thing catching your eyes!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

The cathedral is both beautiful from afar and up close, during the day it dominates the skyline of the center of Brno, and during the night it is illuminated with all the lights on it. beautiful on the inside, and to walk around in those small old streets. and from it you have a very nice view over the city!
