The Church interior is simple but beautiful in its simplicity. The Vault is a crypt where the monks and also local dignitaries were interred. Because of the climatic conditions, the bodies were essentially mummified. While this could be a creepy display, it is actually dignified and well designed to honor these remains. I was impressed.

Truly surprised at the mummified bodies here - some of the glass coffins were propped open - the attendant says it is because of condensation on the inside - so the bodies are still drying out??..WOW... lines of mummies on the floor where they were laid to rest. Quite beautiful and sedate.

This was the first place I had been that the actual bones of the skeletons were shown - I couldn't look at them.

For as old as these bodies (mummies) are you can still see their fingernails!! Very interesting to read the history and about the lives that are here. Don't just walk through and see the bodies, take it all in and embrace the past. Definitely worth a visit.

If you only see one attraction in Brno, this should be it! The entry was cheap at 35CZK for students, although there was no guided tour and there is an extra cost if you want to take photos. You are provided with literature in the language of your choosing. The vault is very quiet and you walk through a series... More

The vault was a place i wanted to visit for a long time and finally i did a few days ago. I didn't know what to expect but it was great experience and a chance to realize that we're mortal and that we should enjoy the time we have. Even though there is no guided tour, you will get a... More

This might be interesting formeveryone who wants to discover a bit more about the history of monks. Their catacombs with all the tumbs and mumified monks / bones is a strong experience.
