 What to do in Brno -short travel guide

 

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know for sure about our day trip to Brno, Czech Republic.  Before I show you what to do and see in a day in Brno, let me tell you something about this beautiful city.

 

Brno is second largest city in Czech Republic.

Their biggest city is their capital city Praha. • I visited Praha 4 Years ago with my hubby .

Brno is at the crossroads between four capital cities –Prague, Bratislava, Vienna, and  Budapest.

Dominant sights of the city include Špilberk castle and fortress and St. Peter and Paul’s Cathedral on Petrov Hill.

Less than 2 hour drive from Vienna is this amazing city.

Before you go to Brno, make a list of things you wanna see and do. This helped us so much, since non of us was there.  I wanted us to visit Churches, their famous Špilberk castle , Old Town Hall and fountain.  Worth mentioning is that we went only for a day in Brno. Here are some of my recommendations on what to see and do in Brno.

  1. Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul

The Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul (Petrov) is one of the dominating features of the city of Brno. A Romanesque church was originally on this site; in the 14th century it was re-built in the Gothic style.

2. Špilberk Castle 

Špilberk Castle was founded in the middle of 13th century by the Czech king Přemysl Otakar II. During the 17th and 18th century the castle was converted to a Baroque fortress is known as the „Jail of nations“ for its reputation of the most feared prison in Habsburg monarchy..

3. Old Town Hall

The Old Town Hall is the oldest secular building in Brno. The historical centre of this building was established around the year 1240. The Old Town Hall is connected with many legends. One of them tells of the creator of the Gothic portal, master Anton Pilgram; the most well-known ones are about the  legendary Brno dragon and the Brno wheel.

4. Parnas Fountain

The fountain symbolizes a cave among natural rocks. Three allegorical figures represent three old empires – Babylon, Persia and Greece.  It was built between 1690 and 1695 according to the design of Viennese architect Jan Bernard Fischer of Erlach.
