Culture of Brno. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

Brno Brno offers its guests to visit numerous attractions of the city. Here you will find many interesting and exciting excursion routes. 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. Until 1858 it remained the main prison of the Austrian Empire. Here were languished freethinkers, who had been brought to the castle from many different countries.

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.

Catedral de San Pedro y Pablo vista desde el Castillo de Spilberk - Brno The capital of South Moravia is full of mysterious and mystical places – though, just as in any major city of the Czech Republic. Among them, Kostnice (ossuaries) in the St. Jakub church stands out in a special way. It is a truly interesting place, especially from a historical point of view. And it sure is a mystical one as well. The place is given a special atmosphere by the soundtrack (musical accompaniment). It seems logical that nervous people are prohibited from entering such places. Mincmistrovský sklep, which is located next to the new Ratusha, is also striking with its mystery. The underground museum tells about money made in the 13th century.
