Villa Tugendhat, Brno
(4.3/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Villa Tugendhat testifies to the birth of modern housing and the tragic fate of its residents. This World Heritage Site and its period furnishings were designed in the 1920s by modern architect Mies van der Rohe as an example of the International style. During World War II, the Gestapo confiscated the villa from its owners, a Jewish trading family. After the war, it was appropriated by the Czechoslovak state. Set on a slope, the threes-story building, which looks like a single-story structure from the street, offers a broad view over the town's historical center. Look for the elegant onyx wall in the living area of the middle floor; it changes color depending on lighting. The story of the villa and its residents inspired writer Simon Mawer's highly acclaimed novel "The Glass Room."

  • The Villa Tugendhat is one of the most significant monuments of 20th century architecture, it is not the most important monument of this period in this country and as such it was included in the UNESC...  more »
  • You can feel the spirit of the first Republic. I recommend a visit at sunset. An incredible game of lights on a onyxove puppy.

  • The great architecture. I was so lucky to get into the villa without reservation as I didn't know that is compulsory. The receptionist told me there was a room although the ticket normally has solded out for two months ahead. If you're individual visitor, you can try to visit the place directly.
  • Beautiful architecture. Even modern for today's times. Worth the 300 czk basic tour.
  • If you are not an architect or fan of building this is not the place for you,don't even waste your time. Don't pay for the garden it's 50 CZR for one person entry in garden and it's really nothing and you waste your money
  • A fantastic villa in a very beautiful neighborhood. Visit Wikipedia for more info, and remember to book well in advance if you fancy a visit there.
  • Interesting and beautiful modern House, but to be honest, for me as a none architect it is a little bit difficult so see the outstanding art of this compared to quite a lot of other modern buildings.
