Brno, Czech Republic

I got this card in the Slavic languages tag...its written in Czech...believe it or not, i understood half of it :)

The Cathedral 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.

I love the view and the colours on this card...not to mention i really love castles in general....
