Brno church gets new organ to replace original destroyed in WWII

A church in central Brno has been fitted with a new organ, decades after its original instrument was destroyed by a World War II bomb. The organ at the Church of the Assumption cost CZK 35 million and is described as one of the best and most modern in the Czech Republic. Speaking after it was blessed and ceremonially handed over on Sunday, Jan Martin Bejček of the Campianus foundation said the organ should serve the church's congregation for 200 years.
