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.

The square was reconstruced completely about a decade ago and some Moravians say that it turned the place into a "big frying pan" in the summer, which is partly true. No trees to provide shade and no chance to feel cosy. The benches are often seated by homeless people and the squere is frequently being crossed by trams which I... More

We mostly enjoyed 2 houses with atlantes in the south end of the square. One has 4 male atlantes with very funny faces. The other has 2 male and 2 female figures whose interaction looked slightly erotic and unusual. There are many more attractions to view at this square.

June is the very month to come to the biggest square of the city of Brno - festivals, concerts, shows, crowds of tourists and local people. As I love history I take pictures to become cocktails of the old times and nowadays. It seems one can dance throughout periods of good and bad times travelling backward and forward at least... More

If you're going to pub with friends in the evening or traveling by train somewhere, having some extra time till train leaves, you might be going through Namesti Svobody. It's main advantage is that is in the middle of 2 big travel points in Brno - main train station and Ceska street. There was a spectacular object erected few years... More

Obligatory place to visit in Brno downtown. It has many shops an restaurants/cafes, and a new penis like Clock Tower, which I have no idea what time it is. One lucky visitor gets a ball which drops out from the clock tower each day.

Even though I am a proud citizen of Brno, I must admit that our main square is quite bad. There isn´t anything interestin to see, not much green or places where you would like to sit and relax. It´s true that few years ago there was the clock machine built. But it looks weird. You do not even want to... More
