    Zelny trh

    by Veroali Written Apr 28, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Zelny trh (Cabbage or Vegetable market) is called the square in the center of Brno. It has been here since 13. century and always served as a market, currently for vegetable, fruit and flowers only. The square is surrounded by Theater Reduta, Theater Husa na provazku and Moravian museum (Dietrichstein palace) .
    In the middle of the square stands the fountain Parnas, built in 17. century.
    It is one of the lastest places where the custom is still kept.

    Zelny trh ( cabbage market ) in central Brno

    Zelny trh was built as a farmer's market nearly 800 years ago, and is still used primarily as a fresh produce market. One can buy many things besides cabbages at this market. Fresh fruits and vegetables of nearly every kind are available. Flowers, homemade candies, preserves, and countless other items are for sell here. The market also serves important social and photography purposes. The market is open weekdays from 0900 to 1800, and Saturdays from 0900 to 1200.

    Whenever it is not being used as a market Zelny trh is one of the most popular public gathering places in Brno. The interesting massive sculpture shown in the photo is the Baroque Parnus Fountain, which was completed in about 1690.

    Many fascinating palatial buildings featuring Renaissance and Baroque architectural styles grace the periphery of the market square. Old town hall is close by. This is a must see for your visit to the old Moravian capital city.

    Cabbage Market

    Not just cabbage gets sold here, flowers and all kinds of fruit and veg.

    Interesting on a trip to meet the local Czech farmers and market gardeners and perhaps take a beer or two from the bars dotted around the square.

    The market is open daily from 9am to 6pm and on Saturday mornings 9am to 12 noon. Closed Sundays.

    Cabbage Market (Zelny trh)

    This 13th century farmer's market, is a pleasant square still busy with market stalls selling fruit and vegtables. In the centre of the square is one of Brno's most important sites, the interestingly beautiful Baroque Parnas fountain built at the end of the 17th century.
    The square has a column at the top end and is surrounded by richly dominant buildings.
