    Must see when you´re in the city.
    This cathedral is on a hill in the city centre. It is very beautiful inside and outside. It is very nicely decorated, not over the top

    If you plan to swim, be sure to check signs that indicate the level of bacteria in the water. It was at safe levels this time! We even went without a phone and it was so easy to navigate to from Brno city center. Just so nice to relax in the sun.

    This square, literally "cabbage market" has served as a vegetable market since the middle ages, and has even kept its original sloping shape. Its main adornment is the Parnassus Fountain, which looks like a cave. Among the buildings lining the square are the Dietrichstein Palace (at the square's southern end), and the Reduta Theater, one of the oldest theaters in central Europe. And don't forget to visit the statue of Wolfgang Mozart with the head of an adult, and the body of a child. Mozart gave a concert here in front of the Reduta at age 11 in 1767.

    It was a short visit compare to other churches seen, and to breath a spiritual atmosphere, soothing little bit in our daily pace, between our lunch and moving to visit the business event near... We visited the church only shortly, quietly and took a few photographs...

    A lovely park with paths for runs and walks. Play areas for children of all ages. Love the dogs everywhere. Some not on a leash but all well behaved.

    This is a huge church, inside is simple. From outside you can see the big tower, beside the church there is the Governor Palace which is today part of the Moravian Gallery.

    Whether you’re planning a wedding, need help organizing a company meeting, want to learn more about ecology and environmental sciences,Open Garden is an excellent choice! This spot is super kid-friendly, great for an afternoon stroll, and is doing some really awesome things to help other Non-Profits in Czech Republic. The event manager Markéta is amazing and you can tell by her charisma that this place is also a reflection of the passionate people that make it thrive!

    In 1645, towards the last stage of the Thirty Years’ War, the city of Brno became famous across Europe when it managed to thwart a siege by the previously undefeated Swedish army, thanks in part to a little bit of timekeeping trickery.

    The Swedes laid siege to the city for nearly three months, but the citizens of Brno would not surrender. Facing a stalemate, the Swedish general said he would withdraw if the city did not fall by noon, so the local people of Brno decided to turn the clock to read noon an hour early, at 11 o’clock. The general kept his word, and the Swedes packed their weapons and turned home.

    To commemorate this historic victory, the Brno Astronomical Clock monument was erected near náměstí Svobody (Freedom Square) in the city center. At 11 o’clock every day, the shiny black marble obelisk (meant to resemble a bullet, though the phallic shape bears a controversial resemblance to something else…) releases a stream of glass marbles—the color of the city’s coat of arms—that spectators gather around to catch and keep as a souvenir. The noon bell at the local cathedral still rings an hour early every day.

    The Dum Panu z Lipe is a Neo-Renaissance style building on Svobody Square, that housings shops. The exterior is decorated with sgraffito of animal and floral themes. The facade of the building is very symmetric and also has bay windows of two ends of the facade. These are also decorated like the rest of the facade, plus relief sculptures of equestrian and martial themes.

    The building is easy to find on Svobody Square, and is worth a look.

    Originally Romanesque, the church was later replaced by a Gothic church. My spouse and I learned that it was founded for German inhabitants. It's bell tower (308 feet high) is a dominant feature of Brno.

    The white interior is elegant in its simplicity, and features three naves with their majestic pillars that soar upward, climaxing in a net vault ceiling. Within these pillars is the white marble main altar, its focal point being a relief of the crucifixion.

    Standing in stark contrast to the whiteness are the magnificently carved dark wood choir stalls, and the dark pews. The sides of the pews are also intricately carved works of art. Of note also is the exquisite pulpit, and the organ pipes.

    While not a colorful church, it is nevertheless stunning!
