    Are you interested in history of the Czech Republic, mainly in history of the Moravian region? - If your answer is yes, then hurry up to the main building of the Moravian museum,i.e. the Dietrichstein Palace, and enjoy the exposition celebrating the century of the Czech Republic. If you are a fan of mineralogy and geology, then go to the exposition focusing on the stones and rocks including precious stones and meteorites too. If you prefer to listen to the stories of great man, then go and be inspired exploring the cabinet of Karel Absolon, the grandson of Jindrich Wankel, the father of Moravian archeology. Another great story to be listened inside the Mendelianum - part of the Bishop´s courtyard - next to the main building of the museum. Music of Leos Janacek to be celebrated inside the Janacek Memorial - one of my favourite places where to go during the Museum night in Brno. Of course do not miss the Anthropos - the unique exhibition allowing you to study the oldest history of "Moravian Hunters and Gatherers". Have a good time exploring the second largest and second oldest museum of the Czech Republic. During the official state days (bank holidays) in the Czech Republic the admission is free of charge. Do not miss the Museum night in May, there is only a symbolic fee to enter, have fun!

    The museum, located in the castle atop Spilberk Hill, displays artifacts related to the history of Brno as well as houses contemporary art. The venue is expansive with many hallways - guards will steer you to the next section so you won't get lost. Allow at least an hour indoors, then treat yourself to a wonderful view overlooking the city.

    Built in his Organ School’s garden, a generous act on behalf of the school so that he can save the travelling.

    When you arrive, press the door bell to the study room. A staffer will come bring you to the memorial, a five-second walk into the garden. She’ll turn on everything for you and most importantly let Janacek’s music fill up the house.
    A guidebook translates every caption in the exhibition hall. Yay for effort.

    1. You will see his personal items down to a rail card and a passport.

    2. Janacek does rough sketches for his opera’s set. This is to be further worked out by professional designers.

    3. A lot can be seen from how people write. If he’s to be entered for the worst score penmanship it would be a tied-neck race with W. A. Mozart. And his late-romanticism makes it even harder to have his notes deciphered from their tonal context.

    The villa is closely linked to Villa Tugendhat which is just up on the garden. Both gardens are connected. Löw-Beer villa isn't fully furnished. Instead of that you will find there many infos about Brno's burgeoisie history and Löw-Beer and Tugendhat families. Worth to visit.

    ... the twin attractions: St. James, and St. Peter and Paul.

    2. The boards place relevant bible verses in large fonts while artistic info is teeny-tiny exiled down under, much like ‘footnotes’.

    3. You can imagine what it's like in Moravia remembering it as part of the Catholic bloc. Which means here as you go through the artistic timeline you'll notice stylistic changes much in parallel with that of Italy/Rome. This is especially visible in works around the counter-reformation as well as, as much of the collection is set, from high renaissance to Baroque.

    4. Some Brno-specific background could add back a fun narrative to guide this basement journey. The works are mainly from the two churches; why not some juicy paragraphs as to how their works develop and why the works are here rather than there?
