“Lovely day at brnenske prehradne and hrad ververi”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

I really really hope I spelled it right!!
We bought tickets back/forth since we didn't want to walk for two hours to get back. But nice idea if you have a bicycle at your disposition.
The boat trip was lovely, we enjoyed the scenery very much. We watched nature in all it's forms, fishing for carps, naturistic sunbathing, families enjoying a Sunday outing, the sun shining, amorous sceneries between the green leaves, children playing, bicyclists taking a break, children wowing at the boats (almost everybody waves back, it's really good natured and the kids were really happy about it), people picnicking etcetc
The castle was a study of esthetics of decay. It was a lovely experience. We enjoyed walking around it. Very pittoresque.
Wonderful way of spending a day in Brno. We went on a Sunday, along with a lot of locals.

“I would recommend you to use correct Czech name, which is: Statni hrad Veveri”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Castle still needs lots of money. Trail from ship port is nice. Coming on bicycle is quite dangerous as road is narrow and with lots of traffic. Path on the opposite side of the lake is suitable only for MTB as some parts are very steep and narrow. Public transport is frequent and stop is near the entrance.

“Great together with boat trip”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

Its not directly at Brno downtown, but its really one day trip. The best way for us is take tram or any other public transport or taxi to boat station in Brno dam, sometime called "Prygl". Buy ticket to station "Hrad Veveri - Castle Veveri" and from this station its about 20 min walk by very nice part of nature up to castle. Inside castle is small bufet with local food/beer.

“Restoration in progress”
Reviewed 9 December 2010

When I lived in Zastávka u Brna I passed by the Castle many times on the road and also on the boat trip along Brno Lake.

When we had the chance for aq private tour we jumped at it and were shown around by a friend's daughter who was one of the students employed as guides in the summer.

Over the years the castle has been used for a variety of endevours including housing apprentices in the building trade.

The restoration that led to the castle opening to the public and the continuing work to restore the damage of eons results in a place to visit for an afternoon.
