The church is just like any other church to me, but I enjoyed the guided visit to the tower, with very unsusual stairs design. You can also see the organs from up close, the roof and the bells. Hardly any view, since it's not very...More

Lovely old church, in the heart of the city. Because it was Christmas time, there were services going on throughout the evenings. There was no entry charge.

Right in the middle of the Centre easy to get to. Mainly tourist around taking photos. Architectural is good. This is a must see whilst in Brno

Simple but beautiful church. The vaulting inside is exquisite. But for me the fun is found in the exterior sculptures (which are few) that are explained by local folk stories. Unique!

Great place with outstanding atmosphere. Forme lot better than "Petrov" cathedral. White interior seems so clean and innocent and also the tour to the tower is amazing. I am not religios but this place is a symbol of peace for me.

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.

Maybe in memory of a previous painted pink tank by David Cerny in Prague in April 1991 to protest against Soviet regime

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