The only think that upseted me a little bit is that it is quite small. But it is marvelous! I haven't seen so many so well preserved mummies in one place! Great place for those who love history!

Visited the Capuchin church when in Brno in Sep 2011. Not for the squeamish. Mummified remains of monks and other notables displayed on the floor. The rest of the church was fairly average but it is worth seeing if you have the touch of the ghoul about you. Check the opening times though as it did close for a time... More

Planned a visit here on a saturday morning - it is tucked away off the market square so you need to look hard for it , missed it on last visit!

The Crypt below the church with mumified bodies of some towns people and Monks is a must see. It is only a short visit for a small charge. Quite unique to see perfectly mumified bodies laid out for so long.

getting to the crypt is different through a passageway, garden to the entrance.Felt a bit creepy , going down into a cool place and seeing the the shrivelled monk bodies i think of the 14th century. Worth a visit while in brno.
