Well worth a visit to appreciate the scale & beautiful architecture inside & out. Great views of the city from the foot of the cathedral or, if the tower is open, climb up for even better views.

Easter mass at 10:30 was great. It had an orchestra and choir. It was a beautiful service. I think my mum enjoyed it too.

Bautifull Gothic architecture! It has a funny story about the clock: "Traditionally, the bells of the cathedral are rung at 11 o'clock in the morning instead of 12 noon. The reason for this, according to legend,[1] is that during the Thirty Years' War the invading Swedes had promised, when laying siege to Brno, that they would call off their attack... More

Specially if you stopping in Brno on the way from Budapest to Prague, Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul is the most south point in town. If you driving you can park on the street near an go in, then continue your sightseeing, or you can park at the mall in the city center and walk 13 minutes up... More

A very nice cathedral. Looks like a miniature of the one in Prague from outside. Great views. The inside is nothing special.

View from top is very nice but definatelly I recommend to go there out of season as balkonies from which you can see Brno are very tiny and better if there are no any other visitors. If you like visiting churches it's pretty nice inside.

Very impressive cathedral, with a much simplier internal decoration. It's really cheap and not tiring to go up to the bell tower.
