Spielberg Castle is, without a doubt, an important historical object. The beautiful building made in the baroque style is located on a hill. Nowadays the beautiful castle hosts the exhibition of Historical Museum, which tells visitors about the most important events in the history of Brno. The past of the castle is rather grim and dark.

Church of St. Peter and Paul is one more interesting destination of excursions. The first temple on the site of the modern church was built in the 12th century. Right after the opening a crypt was transported to the church. Nowadays the crypt is known as the main religious artifact of the church. The tower of the church is the location of an old clock. There is also an interesting story connected with this clock. Every day the clock alarms the noon exactly one hour earlier. This custom is the memory of an important event that took place in 1645, when the church bell ringer noticed Swedish invaders on the outskirts of the city. He started ringing the bell and his alert warned the townspeople. The city was saved thanks to his wit and attention.
Freedom Square is a perfect place for unhurried walks. You will be amazed by beautiful old buildings located near it.
