Places to Visit in Brno:

PetrovCathederal of St. Peter and Paul, is located on the top of the hill, known as Petrov, on the presumed site of the former Brno castle. After the castle`s demise the free-standing Romanesque basilica was rebuilt as a Gothic cathedral in the 13th century and converted to the Baroque style in the 18th century. Its current neo-Gothic form dates from the turn of this century. Since 1777 the cathedral has been the seat of the Brno bishopric.  Location: 10 min walk from the centre.

Spilberg Castle is dominating the cities skyline along with Petrus and is well worth a visit.  From a major royal castle - established around the mid-13th century - and the seat of the Moravian margraves in the mid-14th century, the castle gradually turned into a huge baroque fortress, the heaviest prison in the Austro-Hungarian empire and then the barracks. Currently, it's a museum with restaurant and nice park around, open for walks and beautiful sightseeings. Location: 5 min walk from the centre.
