Fabulous focal point for exploring.
Aug 2020
We visited the square in August 2020. We had rented a private apartment in the square to overlook all the activities. The square was hosting a beer festival during our weekend stay, which was very much enjoyed! There is very much going on in the square, lots of bars and restaurants. A large dancing fountain is fascinating to watch while sat in a deck chair! Its a perfect place to people watch and soak in the atmosphere.

Nice town square
Aug 2020 • Couples
A good central point from which you can explore the city. Just off to one side are the underground caves, which were used to keep fruit and veg fresh. On which note, the daily market here allows you to pick up some lovely fresh fruit for a picnic while there. There's a big statue in the middle which was apparently the place where they used to lock up various unsavoury characters and some other poor souls who were just not the full shilling

A Happening Place!
Sep 2019
Also known as Freedom Square, this main square of Brno buzzes with life, its many restaurants and cafes being popular meeting places.

The chief landmarks are the Baroque plague column, the circular grids of two bronze fountains, and the totally out-of-place modern black astronomical clock, which is shaped like a bullet.

The architecture around the square spans 400 years. Some of its finest buildings include the Schwartz House with its 16th century facade decorated with sgraffito, and the House of the Four Marnlases (giants), whose four comical Atlas figures strain to support the building.

On the day of our visit, the square was hopping, and filled tables, beer, wine, and food tents. Everyone seemed to be having such a good time, so we stopped by some of the booths for free samples. If we hadn't needed to return to the hotel for our tour group dinner, my husband and I would have stayed to enjoy the evening with the happy throng.

Christmas Market!
Dec 2019
Beautiful place, the architecture is so different and interesting! It also is very eclectic, different influences shaped this city and you can see them all at Namesti Svobody.
I visited it last year for the first time and we came back this year as well, great Christmas Market - quiet, cozy, not as busy as the ones in Prague or Vienna.
If you can - visit Brno, it's really refreshing!

Fine square
Sep 2019
Visited back in September.
Namesti Svobody is the main public square of Brno and is almost like the central point where many shopping streets converge. Lost to do and see here especially as several landmarks of the city are also here such as the Plague Column, the astronomical clock and many fine buildings.

Freedom Square!
Aug 2019
If you are in Brno, make it a point to visit Namesti Svobody, Freedom Square in English. There is almost always something happening there, a festival, military graduation, or just the great cafes and restaurants around the perimeter, can't go wrong. Beautiful statue and the controversial "bullet clock", never did get a marble from it at 11:00 though!

Nice square!
Jul 2019 • Couples
A big improvement on Old Town Square in Prague which I know only too well...
Interesting place, good choices for eating and drinking. Relaxed atmosphere.
The clock with a glass ball emitted at 1100 daily is fascinating.

Celebrating 150 years of municipal traffic in Brno
Jun 2019 • Friends
Allowing people to move from one place to another inside the city quicly, offering them comfort and protecting the environment too - these are the key moments of the municipal traffic plus the traditional Days of Traffic Nostalgy in June in the form of parade of historic vehicles including a steam engine.

Nice square with some beautiful buildings around and a column in the middle. There are also some cafes where you can relax and drink a coffee.
