People Watching

This Square doesn't have any spectacular buildings or churches. It is a great place to watch people, either from benches or at a pub while enjoying a beer.

This is a central location in the city, an open space from which many streets opens. Main sights can be conveniently accessed from here, while the square itself is of no particular interest from a tourist's point of view.

All Brno squares are no reconstructed. It has floor probably from 50". It is dirty, it is not historic nor nice. There is a lot of cities in Central Europe they recontructed floor in historic view. (Prague, Bratislava, Kosice, Znojmo...), but not Brno.

Namesti Svobody is nice place to walk around, especially if you want to shop or to realx a little around the city. There are nice stores and cafes around.

Walked through the square to go to St. Peter & St. Paul Cathedral, not much to see in the square besides the Baroque Plague Columb, Astronomical Clock and the House of Four Atlantes

If you're in town, it's worth visiting but not worth going out of your way... Czech Republic has a lot of interesting squares and this wouldn't be in the top ten.
