Brno, the regional capital and second largest city of the Czech Republic, has a lot to offer to its visitors. For example, you can visit castle Špilberk and the famous underground casemates with a permanent exhibition of Baroque fortification build­ing and prisons in Emperor Joseph’s era; you should also note the Functionalist villa Tugendhat, listed among UNESCO monuments, the cathedral of St. Peter and Paul, the Old Townhouse with the renowned Brno dragon as well as numerous monas­teries and churches.

Among them the church of St. Cyril and Methodius in Brno-Židenice, built in 1932–1935 according to the design of Claudius Madlmayer. The church, with a layout inspired by the scheme of an ancient Christian basilica, has flat ceilings from larch wood and features a 46meters tall bell-tower with four bells.
