A short walk up the hill through a very pleasant park and you can see the panorama of Brno. We didn't go inside the castle itself, but withough buying any tickets it's possible to walk inside the walls and the yard.

Being the second most important city of Czech republic, Brno is highly developed and calm one after Prague in Czech. Unlike Prague, the streets of Brno are not packed with tourists yet you will enjoy the real taste of Czech. If you are an urban/history...More

Nice tourist destination to walk. The place is surrounded by park and nice walks, so you can see entire Brno. I really enjoyed this place, there was a lot to see. If you are accompanied by someone local, you can get a grasp of history.

Just a disclaimer - not all of the castle is open in February so this only applies to the Casemates ticket. The castle and the grounds are very well kept. I did have a little trouble finding the entrance and ticket center, but I suspect...More
