If you plan on going to the museum, don't expect too much out of it. It's a prison museum but since there is no guided tour [or at least I wasn't able to find one] the leaflet which you get on the entrance is obscure...More

You need walk a bit to see this attraction and have great views. Little bit tiresome for some people but worth for it.

It´s a nice place with a good view over Brno. Nothing special to visit, but you can view Brno. Also can take a beer in there.

It has it's own beauty on the Brno panorama, one of a kind place to visit, including dungeons inside the chambers of Spilberk Castle. Lot of green pastures to rest or play games, from pentaque to what ever one can think of in nature. If...More
