Namesti Svobody, Brno

4.0
#4 of 117 in Things to do in Brno
Watch the legends of the city come to life at Namesti Svobody, which is dotted with medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque buildings. Head to the top of the 63 m (207 ft) high tower of the Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul for a view of the historical area. At the old town hall entrance, look for the town's well-known emblems: the Brno Dragon--the stuffed body of a crocodile that terrorized the citizens in the past--and a wagon wheel. Consider a stop at the capuchin crypt, then switch gears by picking up some fresh fruit or flowers at the cabbage market. Throughout the center, you'll find cafes, restaurants, and shops. For Namesti Svobody and beyond, use our Brno trip planning tool to get the most from your Brno vacation.

  • For the Christmas holidays the whole Brno lights up and filled a variety of stalls it is beautiful, lovely and inspiring! Each year, somewhere, I go and I take the Christmas atmosphere, together with svařenym and bramborakem. In the atmosphere it is necessary to pause and regain strength even at the booth with Turkish honey or Mead.
