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.

Freedom Square is a place that you want to visit. It's located at the very city center, and it captures your attention immediately. A (really) big square, with lots of restaurants, pubs, snack joints, a few local stores with souvenirs, and an impressive amount of free space. It's just wide. Almost no cars go by (except for a few authorized... More

I lived in Namesti Svobody for 6 months. I fell in love with it instantly. The cafes, atmosphere, and architecture took my breath away daily. Its eastern European charm is classic and quaint. The way the locals come out as soon as it hits 60 degrees. The affordable and delicious eating. Everything about this square and city have me in... More

This is the main part of the city. You don't know if and when they have some performance here, so you should visit it. Even without any performance, this square is a center of Brno, so it can be a start point of any discovery.

We happened to run into this festival so we bought some local food and had a glass of wine. The wine glass couldn't be returned so it apparently a keepsake. Prices were very reasonable and there was always a place to sit. The band wasn't bad either. I think we'll go back tomorrow night.

A lot happens in this square. With its (in)famous astronomical clock commonly know by the youngest generations by "the black dildo" (also the most common location in town for a meeting point), in this square you'll have throughout the year many events and gatherings. Every other week you'll see a few dozen cottages and selling food, drinks and depending on... More

Almost Nothing interesting is there. There are no trees, the square is gray - completely gray color and completely gray boring square. Only one interesting object is a clock. Black clock about 3 m high black looks like a phalus (Cannot write here more I suppose). In winter they cover it by special gum to preserve it and protect from... More

The square is lovely. in the NW corner, you'll see a lovely statue commemorating the victims of the plagues that swept through the city in the late 1600's. There's also a lovely fountain across the trolley line at the NE corner. Towards the bottom corner (the square is more of a triangle), you'll find a large obelisk that sort of... More
