The Church of St.Peter and Paul from the 13th century is the dominant of Brno.
It is situated on the hill Petrov at the place of the original Brno Castle from
the 11th and 12th centuries. The church went through several changes in the
15th and the 16th centuries and in the years 1743-1746 it was rebuilt in the
style of High Baroque according to the project by M.Grimm. Since 1777 the cathedral
is the seat of the bishop of Brno. The church got the recent Neo-Gothic appearance
at the turn of the 19th and the 20th centuries; the original crypt of the church
from the 12th century is open to the public.
