“Rip off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

If i remember correctly (i am trying to forget) you pay 60kc admission for a 5-7 minute walk into 5 rooms that have mummified remains of Capuchin monks (or so i think because nothing was in English)

“Truth is stranger than fiction - extraordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

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! English seem not particularly welcome and when we asked if English spoken were met with an abrupt 'no' - we paid for 3 adults and received one tattered laminated copy of guide in English which we all had to huddle round and read as we progressed round the rooms.
Yes it is extraordinary to see the old townsfolk and monks preserved in full view - although fascinating there was something uncomfortable in viewing someone in their final rest - I am sure the local dignitaries did not ask to rest here to be put on show for the world to see. However there was something reassuring seeing the monks at rest as it seems a natural progression from their life in the Order above to be with their fellows at rest. Altogether a very though provoking experience
Do not bring children - for the family who brought a small child , shame on you , I hope this does not give them nightmares , it certainly made them scream and run around disrespectfully

“Eerie and Must See”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

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.

“Eerie!!!!!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

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.
