Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic and the largest city of Moravia. It spreads around the confluence of the rivers Svratka and Svitava. Hills surround the city from three sides, which gives the city an attractive look and atmosphere. The historic centre of Brno was proclaimed an Urban Monument Reserve.

A bit of history

Archaeological findings prove that the area has been inhabited since the Prehistoric Era. The first written record of settlement comes from 1091 from the Cosmas Chronicle. Since the 11th century, there are records of the Břetislav's Castle. Since the 13th century, the area was gradually being colonized. Fortifications around the city of Brno were built. During the Hussite Wars, the city Brno resisted the Hussite attacks and some time later defended itself against the attacks of the Swedish army. At the time, Brno was the only city in whole Moravia that managed to resist the Swedes. Due to this, the Austrian Empire was able to create a new army and eventually push out the Swedish forces. Not even the Prussians in the 18th century managed to seize Brno. In the 18th century, Brno and its surroundings saw a rapid industrial development, especially in the textile and engineering industry. Brno ceased to be a fortified town and began to spread. New schools, grammar schools, administrative buildings and other objects were being built. Street lamps were installed. Since 1839, a train line to Brno was built.

Significant buildings

Brno is indisputably dominated by the Špilberk Castle that used to serve as a fort and later as a dreaded prison.
Another significant architectonical monument in the city is the Cathedral of St Peter and Paul. Several historical architectonical pearls, including the unique functionalistic building called Vila Tugendhat , are included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Other buildings, that are definitely worth seeing in Brno are e.g. the Main Railway Station, the Moravian Gallery (Místodržitelský Palace) , the Měnín Gate, the House of Art, the Parnas Fountain, the Mahen Theatre or the Zeman Cafe. There are also many churches and ecclesiastical buildings. Apart from the already mentioned cathedral, there is the Red Church, the St Jacob's Church, the St Michael's Church, the Augustinian Monastery and the Basilica of the Assumption of Virgin Mary, etc.

It's all about sightseeing and places and prices here, which is useful, but, in case you speak or understand Czech language, you will be caught by the local dialect (hantec). Enjoy!
