Not for the squeamish - but well worth the visit.

A tad morbid, and if you're a non-believer a little evangelical (this can be excused after all it is a monastery and I'm lucky enough to be allowed to visit it), but all-together... read more

A tad morbid, and if you're a non-believer a little evangelical (this can be excused after all it is a monastery and I'm lucky enough to be allowed to visit it), but all-together fascinating. The folk buried in this crypt were naturally mummified due to the specific environmental conditions. The bodies are respectfully displayed. Interpretation boards indicate the name of... More

This is a must see in Brno. Unmistakable genius loci, a place where you stop and think about your life.

This site was one of my Must-visit places. It is amazing to see. It feels odd to take pictures, just be respectful. Smaller than I expected.

Very interesting place to visit. So well documented and very respectful. I was a bit reluctant at first but was glad I made the effort to visit.

The Capuchin Vault is an interesting sight to visit in Brno. Something to do with the ventilation system in this subterranean crypt has slowed the decomposition process and resulted in the partial mummification of the monks and other important individuals buried within the Vault. The entrance to the Vault is down a narrow alleyway on the left hand side when... More

My boyfriend and I just stomped in there, having no idea what we were looking or what to expect, and it was fantastic. There was one lady who was buried alive, which you can see by the way her corpse is looking. If you don't like scary things don't go, but we had amazing time.

If you are into history or like ossuaries this is the place. Only a small place but nice to see - the price is ok too and there are some souvenirs to buy which is difficult in Brno

This is really great attraction in Brno. In this crypt you can feel there old history and you can learn about famous peple from long history. You will see there mummified and dried bodies and it is really interesting.

This is definitely one of the top attractions in Brno, but not for sissies. You will see the mummified and dried bodies of different ages, status, etc. However, the detailed descriptions at some exhibits are in Czech only - you'll get a sheet in English with the basic stuff translated, though.

In the cellar of this little monastery, there are dozens of mummified monks. Spooky but amazing - don't miss it!
