The Church of St. Tomas, located in Brno, was originally an Augustinian monastery. The founders of the monastery were Margrave Jan of Luxembourg and Josha – his son. The monastery was built as a tomb for the burial of the bodies of its founders.
During the Thirty Years War, the monastery was destroyed so much that it was not subject to reconstruction. In 1665-1675, the building was rebuilt by architect Jan Krstitel Erna.
Today, the church features hand-made frescoes made in the 18th century, the most popular painting is the Appearance of Christ to the Apostles located on the main altar.
