Brno is a town of architecture ranging from the Gothic to Modernism. Representatives of Functionalism are a jewel, and they go beyond just the Villa Tugendhat by the phenomenal architect van der Rohe. We can easily spend a week talking just about this villa, but words are no substitute for the real thing: go and see it with your own eyes. (The tours are in great demand, so make your booking in advance.) You can visit other villas in the city, for example the Mitrovský Summer House, which is impossible to miss among the urban environment.
Brno is a city of fantastic local and global cuisine, which has been mapped for you by the Gourmet Brno food guide. It will take you to all sorts of culinary places, from bistros and sweet shops to fine-dining restaurants.
Brno is definitely a city of music and UNESCO has noticed this as well. You can hear Janáček and jazz here, you can see Smetana’s The Bartered Bride in the theatre and street musicians in the open air. Explore the city on your own or with professional guides during walking tours or minibus rides. Alone, as a couple, with a bunch of friends or with a family, and at favourable prices with BRNOPAS.
Apart from museums and galleries, the Moravian metropolis also has a lot of greenery: a zoo spreading over a forested hill, lovely parks and fountains and a reservoir with old steamboats. Science is fun in Brno thanks to the observatory with a planetarium, which is modern both in its equipment and in its approach to visitors. And also thanks to the VIDA! Science Centre, where kids as well as grown-ups can become fans of science.
A pleasant thing about Brno is the fact that everything is close by and if you cannot get somewhere on foot, you can easily get there by public transport. Explore the Brno underground and enjoy a view of the city from one of the many lookout towers. And did you know that Brno is the only city in the world where the clock strikes noon at eleven o’clock?
