Seeing death

I went to Brno specially to witness the mummies. Definitely one of the eeriest places you'll ever visit.Try snapping a selfie with one of them if you've got the guts for it!

Mummies were definitely not something that would come to mind when thinking about the Czech Republic; this blew my mind! This is truly a fascinating place and well worth a visit. I went on a day when I had the place to myself; it was quiet and eerie and still. The mummified nobles were the most interesting because you could... More

Definitely worth money and time. Very "real" and spooky. If you dont know which one you should choose of this or "kostnica" under St. Jacob church - you should definitely should go for this one. You will get more informations, its cheaper and bigger and more interesting. Staff is very friendly and helpful as well.

The crypt is known for the remains of the Capuchin monks who are all laid out in a single room but there are about three or four other chambers containing the mummified remains of tradesmen and dignitaries of Brno's past. An English language printed guide is provided. I find these sort of places peaceful and fascinating. It's can only be... More

Not to everyone's taste and definitely not for the squeamish, but otherwise and interesting visit and a look back into the past.

half of which belong to characters which played a more prominent role in the history of Brno, and the rest belonging to ‘simple’ Capuchin monks. Upon entry we got some laminated sheets which had some decent information on the different displays, like family ties, place of burial, etc. Some mummies still wore traditional clothing. IT WAS GREAT!

I expected to see some interesting cellars from the point of architecture - a disappointment. Mummies make you thing of fragility of human life, but I do not recommend this place if you seek just entertainment. However, tickets help to support the historic church. A nice exhibition of miniature models of Moravian village just next door.

We visited the vault knowing what we were going to face (my boyfriend is studying in Brno) but the sight of these mummies was beyond anything I dared to imagine! At the front desk a lady gave us guide sheets in English that helped a lot since we knew exactly were we were and what we were seeing. The enter... More

Not many monasteries have mummies. I loved that it was something that made this place unique and worth going to. They have printed guides in English which really helps.

This small monastic vault was a surprisingly interesting and incredibly moving experience. It was the highlight of our visit to Brno. We were given an English translation sheet and diligently obeyed the silence request. It was a shame that the school group that followed us in was as noisy here as they were anywhere. The lack of respect annoyed us... More
