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!

This charming church is in the city centre of Brno and it's easy to find, only few minutes walk from main square. Worth to climb to the top with only 40CZK (around €1.50) to enjoy the view of the city.

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