We stayed very close to this square, when we visited to watch Moto GP. We arrived on the Tuesday and saw it getting busier and busier, the closer to race day. There are plenty of good places to eat and drink around the square. There is a supermarket, where we purchased snacks and drinks to take to the track. The... More

This is the busy town square. It is part of the main shopping area. It has some nice buildings, an unusual clock and modern fountain which is the best bit for little ones. There are more atmospheric and picturesque parts of Brno to sit for a drink.

It's a nice place with amazing architecture. There are some lovely bars where you can relax with a good view on astronomical clock. We sat in a Galerie Caffe - hint: their homemade lemonade is very good and refreshing.

Namesti Svobody is in the hearth of Brno so it makes it a good starting point. However, the actual square is more than boring. The bars and restaurant here are the posh ones, they do not provide any cultural insight and are not places where locals go. You should definitely walk one or two streets away from square where the... More

There are many plaza cafes and restaurants and there was music in the evenings. It's a well designed space to enjoy a meal or hang out.

Lots of people traffic and good place to people watch. Good variation in the architectural styles. In the center of the city. Numerous food and shopping venues. Little car traffic with the tram lines running through the square. The phallic black clock, fountain for the children to play in and monument to plague victims. Nice nighttime vibe.

Thank randy s
