Owner description: A significant historical building in the centre of Brno. Today, the Old Town Hall serves mainly cultural purposes, as it houses a gallery, an information centre, and a permanent exhibition on its history. In summer, you can visit its historical halls and climb up the 63-metre tower to enjoy an impressive view of Brno from the top. The courtyard serves as a venue for various concerts, festivals, theatre performances, and film screenings. Enter its arched passage through the portal beneath the legendary Late Gothic turret by sculptor Anton Pilgram. In the passage, you can see two items from other famous Brno legends: a crocodile, also called the Brno dragon, and a wheel. The courtyard beyond, with Renaissance arcades from the end of the 16th century, was built by Italian designers, and later modifications are the result of its Early Baroque renovations. The Old Town Hall served its original purpose until 1935 when the authorities moved to the New Town Hall located at Dominican Square.

Be warned you might be in for a lot of walking. The roads go up and down and if you get high enough, there can be a lot of stairs down at the railway station end. Plenty of food and drink places, and even small shopping malls. Quite a mix here. Take your map as the roads are not straight or in a regular grid.

In the center of Brno there is discreetly building with beautiful portal, high tower and many legends. Do you know legend about Brno dragon or Brno wheel? No? So that you can visit this place and see our dragon which is only big crocodile but for me and all Brno it is dragon. Of course you can go up the stairs to tower and see whole old town or visit hall. In summer in forecourt of old town hall there are many amusing performances. Petra
