The right name of this church is actually Komensky cathedral of the Czech brothers church, but nobody in Brno calls it different from Red church. It is one of the most known monuments in Brno, it can be found near the street Ceska, next to an important transfer node, next to the School of Medicine and to the constitutional court. There are regularly held choristers. The church is open only during the service. It was built from red fair-face bricks in so-called North-German Gothic in accordance with the plans of Heinrich von Ferstel. The corner-stone was placed on 7 September 1863 and the church was finished by the year 1867. A year before were casted and prepared three bells. The church is 45 meters long and its tower is 50 meters high. The interior is austere and simple, it is illuminated by the sunrays comming through coloured window glasses. One of the few decorations are carvings made by Franz Schonthaler.

Address: Jostova street, near Komenskeho square
