Reviewed July 19, 2012

Lovely monastery with decorated crypt that gives goose bumps to many visitors, scary and interesting at the same time

“Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

This crypt is very well done and informative. I must admit, I got a little creeped out while in there. As someone that has seen a lot of mummies on her travels (not sure why), this really made me think and appreciate life. I recommend!

“Does what it says on the tin”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

Visited the crypt in the Capuchin Church, and there was definately no disappointments.
Mummies/corpses were spectacularly preserved, and the mass "allotment" at the end was indeed spine-chilling.
Must see in Brno!

“Interesting - strangely enhances one's sense of mortality”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

Not many exhibits, but fascinating and an Interesting encounter- strangely enhances one's sense of mortality. "As we are so will you be." Many attractions were closed or being refurbished in March - outr time of visit, however this was a quiet and settling experience. If you have never seen mummified people then here is an alternative to the catacombs of parts of Italy.

“Interesting visit”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

If you havent seen mummified ( no preservatives used as with Egyptians) corpses then this is worth a visit. An interesting little monastery which holds the remains of mummified nobles and monks whcih are more than 200 years old. Can be a little disturbing if you havent seen this sort of thing before. You need to pay and extra Kr10 if you want to take photos.
