Explore Brno


Brno is full of valuable historical buildings and interesting places. For a true feel of just how amazing this city is, here’s a list of its must-see locations.

You should definitely visit the two dominant hills in the city centre. On Petrov Hill, you can admire Katedrála sv. Petra a Pavla (the Cathedral of St Peter and Paul), and at the top of Špilberk Hill, you’ll find the city’s famous castle, which contains a museum and casemates. It was known as the harshest jail in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Close to Zelný trh (the Vegetable Market) is Stará radnice (the Old Town Hall) with the fabled dragon of Brno in its passageway, historical halls, and a lookout tower. The Brno underground promises unforgettable experiences, such as Labyrint pod Zelným trhem (the Labyrinth under the Vegetable Market), Mincmistrovský sklep (the Mint Master’s Cellar), and the second-largest ossuary in Europe. If you’re interested in sacred historical buildings, make sure not to miss Kostel sv. Jakuba (the Church of St James) and Bazilika Nanebevzetí Panny Marie (the Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady). If you fancy a short trip into the city’s countryside, Veveří Castle, towering over the largest body of water in Brno, is a very romantic sight.
