If there is something in Brno that you just HAVE to see, it is Villa Tugendhat. It is incredible example of such a specific architectonic style and there simply are stories bound that you won´t probably believe. But yes, it does have its flaws... You HAVE to make a reservation probably 2 months ahead to get you a spot and... More

I was lucky that a local friend arranged me a ticket for this museum --the waiting list even off-season can be many weeks for the English spoken tours -max 15 pax-, beware! But such an experience. A masterpiece of architect genius Mies van der Rohe, possibly his best work. Beautifully restored and now a UNESCO World Heritage object. Apparently Grete... More

A unique example of the modern architecture. You will be amazed and suprized by the innovative parts which are not expected to be in place at the time when the house was built. Some of the inventions are today considered as common. Very educative.

Fantastic house, well worth making the 2 1/2 hour train journey from Prague. The restoration in 2012 has brought the house back to a near-new condition, and Mies's vision of luxury looks so fresh and contemporary. Such sad stories surround this house, but it is wonderful that it is once again open to the public in pristine condition.

We were lucky to get one of the limited tickets for an English language tour of this house. The tour guide did a great job explaining the design and planning of the house in the 1920s and then the history of the family that built it and how it was used during the Nazi occupation and the Russian control of...

We went to Villa Tugendhat on a very excited note, as my fiancé is very much interested in modern architecture, but when we reached the ticket office they said only pre-booked tickets allowed. It was such a disappointment. Need to come more prepared! At least we saw the outside!

This is my second tour of this amazing building. The first was 6 months ago, but in Czech so I didn't understand much, I just let myself be blown over by the sheer beauty of the place. This time it was in English, but revisiting it gave me the great satisfaction of knowing that my first impressions were correct; it... More

Can see there Eco houses anywhere! Booked out early but when we arrived we were glad that we hadn't got a ticket anyway.

The story behind this house is so interesting it is easy one of the highlights of our trip to Czech Republic. Well worth the trip and the novel The Glass Room is a must read- historical fiction about this house. Must get reserved tickets.

Recently carefully restored to its' original beauty, this place must not be missed by anybody who likes modern architecture. Make sure to book your visit in long advance. The access is limited to small groups of visitors only and sometimes it takes months to get a ticket. Especially in English or German languages. However, you may visit the garden and... More
