Originally a Romanesque basilica built on the top of a hill known as Petrov, later rebuilt in the Gothic style. Its current neo-Gothic form dates back to the turn of the 19th and 20th century. Besides the Baroque interior the public is allowed access to both cathedral towers as well as the crypt. The characteristic shape of the cathedral and the typical silhouette of the Špilberk Castle form the famous Brno skyline. Petrov is a good starting point for a walk leading to the Capuchin Gardens and Denis Park.
