Great building. Very friendly people at the information desk. The famous Brno dragon smells a little suspiciously - I thought it was a plastic model, but...

Worth a visit, but there wasn't a ton to see. Glad I stopped by, but don't strain yourself to get there.

The old town hall houses a number of small but interesting exhibits. This has a gothic portal and a number of turrets built above it. The middle one was deliberately built leaning over to symbolise the crookedness of the person who had hired the builder, but then would not pay for the work. Below the portal was a replica model...

There is an alligator hanging from the ceiling in the entrance, and the building is nice. There also is the information center.

You just have to see the Brno Dragon while you are in Brno, especially if you are from Florida, as I am. And the view from the tower is worth the climb. But you can see the whole thing in 30-45 minutes.

The Old Town Hall with its tower, bent Gothic decoration on the entrance and random crocodile suspended from the roof is a must when visiting Brno. Go up the tower and explore the courtyard. Fascinating. Visited in sep 2011.

Very nice mason's work above the entrance gate with a crooked part; a story goes the craftsman wasn't paid enough thus he spoiled his masterpiece on purpose. The Brno impressive "dragon" hanging in the corridor (crocodile in fact). There is an information centre in that corridor. Nice tower to climb for a view. But all that isncompletely spoiled for me...
