  • Spielberg Castle (Hrad Spilberk)

    Brno Things to Do

    The area above Brno is dominated by the magnificent Hrad Spilberk or Spielberg Castle, the history of which is fascinating. It is now also home to the Brno City Museum. The complex is in several parts, so let's go through them. Before I begin, I should say that the place is very photogenic and I developed rather a camera frenzy. As there are only...

  • Old Town Hall (Stara Radnice)

    Brno Things to Do

    If you are walking round the centre of Brno, and I strongly recommend you do, you will sooner or later come upon the Stara Radnice, or Old Town Hall if you prefer. It is a magnificent edifice and apparently the oldest secular building in a city that is overflowing with them. In the way of these things, it has been altered and added to over the...

  • Churches

    Brno Things to Do

    Brnoo is well endowed with fine churches and here is another example, the Church of St. James. I was lucky enough to have view of it from my hotel, as you can see from the photo, for which I apologise, it is not one of my better efforts. The Church was begun at the end of the 14th century although for various reasons, not least the Hussite...

  • Freedom Square

    Brno Things to Do

    Many major world cities have very famous squares. Think Trafalgar Square, Times Square, Tianamen Square etc. and not to be outdone Brno has an absolute beauty. It is the Namesti Svobody (Freedom Square) which is large and traffic free except for a couple of tram lines. This makes it a lovely place to wander round or sit and enjoy a drink at one of...

  • Markets

    Brno Things to Do

    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...

  • General interest

    Brno Things to Do

    If you've got an afternoon to kill, the Minigolf Stadion on Kounicova is eighteen holes of endearingly low-fi, concrete themed fun. At 40czk for an adult it's a bargain time-frittering activity, and is also situated in a nice shady courtyard, which gives a bit of welcome respite from the heat in the summer. By your fifth attempt of trying to get...

  • Brno Lake.

    Brno Things to Do

    Take the boat trip from Bystrc to the other end of Brno Lake and back. It's takes a couple of hours and if the weather is sunny you can get a decent tan in one day! It's very relaxing! (In the pic you can just see the boat coming around at the top right.... I switched to video mode after this! The pic was taken from Veveøi Castle)

  • Brno Zoo

    Brno Things to Do

    This my favorite place and I visit it every year at least once. You can even take your dog along if you keep him/her on a leash and clean the droppings :) There is also a "children zoo" - with goats, sheeps, ponys, and their little babies. My favorite inhabitans are: sand cat and her three babies, pair of Nestor Keas, prairie dogs, wolves, foxes,...

  • Capuchin´s crypt

    Brno Things to Do

    Capuchin monks have long been associated with Brno and they still have an impressive church here, as shown in the main picture. Interesting as it is, most visitors are probably more interested in the slightly ghoulish contents of the crypt beneath. Basically monks from the Order, along with others, were interred here and, because of a quirk of...

  • Augustyn monastery

    Brno Things to Do

    The former augustyn monastery dates back to 1665 and was built in Baroque style. Today it is used for the "Moravia Gallery" / Mährische Gallerie and the best part of its architecture is certainly the great baroque entrance-gate with two great sculptures, showing Markgraf (count) Johann Heinrich and his son Jost. No wonder, Napoleon liked this place...

  • Mahenovo Theatre

    Brno Things to Do

    In a city with more than it's fair share of fine buildings, the Mahen Theatre, to give it it's Anglicised name, does stand out. I am no expert on architecture but hopefully the photo will give you an idea. From a bit of research, reading people who do know about such things, I can tell you the following, including an interesting little piece of...

  • The new townhall

    Brno Things to Do

    This is the innercourt of the new townhall of Brno / Brünn. You may walk inside freely and without restrictions and it is also worth to take a look. All 4 corners of the court have giant dragons on top ( about 4-5 meters long ) spitting out the rain-water - I have a picture of them under "Local customs" When you click on my picture you may also...
