GO TO BRNO’S CITY CENTRE (SHORT TOUR)

This condensed tour of the city centre will take you to the most popular, interesting, and important buildings, squares, streets, and parks.

First climb the relatively steep slope of Denisovy sady (the Denis Gardens) to the top to gaze out over Brno and take in the whole picture. Visit the monumental Katedrála sv. Petra a Pavla (Cathedral of St Peter and Paul) and then descend the stairs to Zelný trh (the Vegetable Market) where you can buy fruits and vegetables while admiring Parnas, the local Baroque fountain. From Zelňák, as the Vegetable Market is also called, it is just a few steps to Stará radnice (the Old Town Hall) with its famous portal, legendary crocodile, and fabled wheel. When you get to náměstí Svobody (Freedom Square), you will surely notice the clock, the facades of local houses, and the round fountains with lines by Brno poet Jan Skácel. Česká Street will take you close to Moravské náměstí (Moravian Square), where you should make sure to have a look at the statue of Margrave Jobst from underneath. Pass through the gate in Běhounská Street, and Janáčkovo divadlo (the Janáček Theatre) will appear in front of you, ready to enchant you with its magnificent water curtain while you sit in the outdoor relaxation area. To wrap up the tour, take a walk across Jakubské náměstí (St James Square), famous for its lively atmosphere in summer. Then head down Masarykova Street until you reach the main station.
