Visiting Brno

Brno

Brno is the major city of Moravia and the second largest city in the Czech Republic. The city was founded around 1000 years ago and received its city status in the year 1243. Therefore it offers many monuments from various historical periods – from the Gothic cathedral to gems of the Functionalism architecture.

The city attracts visitors not only for its historical sights but also because of its cultural events, wonderful food and drinks and generally pleasant and welcoming atmosphere.

Dominant features and ones that can be seen from almost anywhere in the city are the Gothic Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul which is linked to several legends and which saved the city from the Swedish army during the Thirty Years War and the Fortress Špilberk which was once a highly feared prison but today it is a museum and gallery.

The greatest and most visited architectural jewel is the Functionalist Villa Tugendhat that forms part of the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List. This work, by the famous German architect Mies van der Rohe, is regarded as one of the four most important villas in the world. Come and admire the building, which has stood since the beginning of modern housing, and listen to the fascinating and tragic story of the people who lived there.

In the city centre you should visit the Old Town Hall its entrance being guarded by a two meter-long “Dragon”, which incidentally it is the symbol of the city; The Capuchin Monastery with its Baroque statues and mummified monks exhibition in an underground tomb; or the Freedom Square with its modern astronomical clock.

You should not miss The Ossuary of St. James’ Church in the centre of town. In 2001 an archaeological and underground survey was carried out before starting the renovation of Jakubské Square. Several rooms filled with huge volumes of human bones often up to the vault arches were discovered. The estimated number of people buried there exceeded 50 thousand making the Brno Ossuary the second largest in Europe after the Catacombs of Paris. 

A recently added attraction is the newly renovated system of Brno Underground – historical underground corridors where you can see a historical wine cellar, alchemist’s workshop or a jail.

When you are done or just exhausted from all the beauty Brno has to offer, don’t miss the chance to taste Brno beer and local specialties in one of the restaurants (for example Old Brno brewery) or have tasty coffee in one of the traditional cafés that have lost none of their charm from the 1920’s and 1930’s when most of them were built.
