Quite small as cathedrals go, but well maintained. Beautiful stained glass. Outside, opposite the cathedral, was a very unusual mural of a mime walking a tightrope to an angel stuck on a piece of floating rock.

A daunting building that is visible from most parts of the city, the cathedral once access is achieved is largely (so to speak) left to speak for itself. The artistry - particularly of the more spectacular windows and carved figures - is very powerful. Access to the viewing areas in the two towers involves a fair amount of physical effort.... More

This is my favourite gothic cathedral by far. I liked the interior of it very much. Standing inside was as being on the most peaceful place on Earth. The view of magnificent building will leave you speechless. Worth seeing for sure.

Well, it is one of my favorite gothic cathedrals. It is very beautiful and monumental with a great atmosphere of middle ages and history. You really need to check it out by your trip in Brno.

Loved reading the story about why the bells are rang at 1100 for noon each day. Story was straight out of Svejk!

You cannot miss the building as it is clearly visible from a long distance. A tower walk gives a really nice view of the city.

This is a beautiful church inside, made all the more special by having a bride and groom leave the church after their marriage to the applause of their guests. I understand that the church was damaged in the 1600 hundreds during an unsuccessful war by the Swedes. The church is well repaired and quite a beautiful church now. Worth the... More

You can see this cathedral basically from everywhere in the city. It is beautiful, as well as the old town. It must worth a visit, only disadvantage is that it is not so easy to get inside. There is a small park next to it, from where you get a great view of the city.

The whole city can be covered in less than 2hrs, I had a nice sunset walk around the town and ended up at the cathedral by sundown. It was really beautiful and I recommend it to all. I couldn't enter it as it was rather late, but the glimpse through the glass told me quite a lot.

Lovely walk around center of town brought me to church, which is a bit challenging to find entry, but worth the look as the windows were just stunning. Nice frescos and statuary as well. No photos please.
