LocationBrno, Czechia

The Church of Saint Thomas and the Annunciation is a historic church in Brno, Czech Republic.

The church was founded in the middle of 14th century by John Henry of Luxembourg, Margrave of Moravia, with active support of his brother Charles IV., Roman Emperor, originally as part of an Augustinian monastery. After six years of work the church was consecrated by the Olomouc Bishop Jan Očko of Vlašim in the presence of King Charles IV, suzerain of John Henry. Margrave John Henry and his son Jobst of Moravia, titular King of the Germans, are buried here – in the tomb in front of the main altar.

John Henry's second consort, Margaret of Opava, reportedly is buried here, as well.
