I like it. Visiting during the Christmas Market, with a beautiful Christmas Tree makes it extra special. I am confused as to why some posters have said that it lacks atmosphere. I thought there was plenty of atmosphere, as well as mulled wine, and also...More

Many tourists come from countries where democracy is taken for granted. It is refreshing to see a city transform its central square and name it as Freedom Square. The area is quaint and whimsical. There is a stone that is supposed to represent an astronomical...More

This is the main center square of Brno. The tram passed directly through it from the central station up the hill. The square has been refurbished and has a clean, fresh outlook nowadays. Many large stores nearby, but the more interesting stuff is into the...More
