At least this was something I could do when the weather was Novemberishly inclement; have nothing to add to the others' reviews except you should do this even if you have slight doubts, though I've decided not to add any of my interior photos!

“Morbidly compelling”
Reviewed May 4, 2009

I gotta say that looking at dead bodies is not my favorurite pastime, but the Crypt is really interesting. It is strange to see the final resting places of people who lived several centuries ago.

“Great thing”
Reviewed November 17, 2004

Klaster Kapucinu or Capuchin Monastery is one of my favorite atractions in Brno. The atraction is not the monastery itself, but it's undeground with mummies. They are unlike others make by drying with air. The whole undergroud system of tunnels is build with ventilations holes which make the air constantly circuate and dry.
So you can see number of monks and nun mummies, among them mummy which is belived to burried alive /acording her body position/, mummy of Baron Trenk /famouse figure in Brno's mythology/ and other figures connected with Brno's history.
