When walking down the streets of Brno, it’s really surprising just how many sacral places of interest the city contains. The Brno and Its Churches project wants to draw attention to these jewels of history.
Every afternoon from 15 June to 15 September from Tuesday to Saturday, visitors can come to the Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady at Old Brno, the churches of Saint Michael and Saint Thomas as well as the hard-to-miss “Red” Church of Jan Amos Comenius, to admire their interior or, if the timing is right, even take a guided tour.
This is an opportunity to learn a lot of interesting facts about local sacral buildings and activities taking place there during special lectures and tours. And just like with the guided tours in the churches, there will be no admission fee. Just make sure you reserve your spot at these exceptional events beforehand on the TIC Brno website.
Project Brno and its Churches describes a selection of Brno churches that are worth visiting. Some of them are open as part of the project while others are open year-round. Some churches are open only during services and at special occasions; however, visitors can always take a look at their interior from the entrance hall of the church. Don’t miss the Brno and Its Churches project, leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind and relax in their holy silence. Explore the open churches on your own or with experienced guides.
