Even though I am a proud citizen of Brno, I must admit that our main square is quite bad. There isn´t anything interestin to see, not much green or places where you would like to sit and relax. It´s true that few years ago there was the clock machine built. But it looks weird. You do not even want to know how we call it :-) But once you see the shape, you would understand :-) Anyway, the good thing is that there are some celebrations or festivals quite often here and then it´s realy nice. For example Christmas market, wine festival, beer festival and food festival etc. Make sure that you wisit namesti Svobody during one of these events.

Yes, I think you can see a pattern here. We did three underground tours, mostly inexpensive (less than 100 crowns) to the Capuchin Crypt where burial above ground is the norm although the remains are under the street, the ossuary under St. James' Church where we discovered the largest ossuary (collection of human bones) in Europe and the two non-dead underground tours, the Labyrinth and the coin-making caverns. All in all, they were really worth our time albeit the first two are a bit creepy.

Close to the main railway and bus stations, this square is spacious, with trams passing through - which makes the orientation in the centre that much easier. Several nice restaurants, cafes, pubs around, as well as highstreet shops. there is a ..ehm..shaped black clock on one side of the square, probably meant to catch visitors' attention as there is no way of telling the time on this clock.. :-) In the winter it gets cold and windy, as it is a large open area, so rather than strolling there, one better jst rush to some of the nearer streets for some warm refreshment.

The entire city center feels like a nice place to stay.Even in winter people are friendly and helpfull. Trams bring you everywhere cheap, but walking's great to.
So much to do, just walk around and see for yourself!

This famous main square in Brno man has to take as the best the city wants to offer you. And when I say city, I mean its officials of course. So here you can visit many restaurants that probably focused on tourists, plenty of modern architectural relicts around and a controversial sculpture as well. In fact this place might be slightly boring and when it gets crowded here, it’s definitely nothing special.
In winter there are biggest Christmas markets in town, but that simply attracts a lot of more people to the square, so you probably will need to queue for almost everything while listening to live music from large stage.
It is worth of visit, but do not expect something gorgeous.
