Once a year most of the Czech museums open their door to visitors at night, It is unusual for one can enjoy not only the exbitions but also extra programmes - music, wine tasting, fencing, etc. It is really lovely to have a walk up...More

Lovely shady park in the centre of the city, and if you keep heading upwards you'll be able to take in panoramic views of Brno. We didn't bother going into the castle, there was plenty outside for us to enjoy during an early evening stroll.

Lovely walk up to the castle and great views once you get to the top. We didn't go inside the castle, but there are paths all around for you to explore the grounds. It was quiet when we visited and some parts were closed off,...More

When I visited this place weather was beautiful so everything looked better. Surrounding of the castle is very nice but they performed some reconstruction works which were disturbing.

I took my four year old daughter. We paid for the bell tower after being told the castle was a museum and probably not that entertaining for my daughter. We literally walked up the stairs and took a photo looking over Brno. It was ok....More

Situated at the top of the hill next to the old town the Spilberk Castle is BRNO's landmark that also gives you a panoramic view of the town.

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
