Pub

“The renowned “Stopkova Pivnice” pub has always been one of the pillars of Czech social and cultural life in Brno. A pub was opened on this site as early as the mid-19th century. It gained its fame after the arrival of its new owner, the ingenious publican Jaroslav Stopka, who took over the original “Jonákova Pub” in 1910. And even today you can judge for yourselves the quality of the Pilsner Urquell lager served here tapped from their beer tanks. You can also taste typical Czech kitchen here. ”

“Villa Tugendhat is one of the most influental buildings of modern architecture, so it should be definitely number 1 on your list. The thing is you have to book the visit in advance, but sometimes you can be lucky and find a spot within a week. You can still buy the ticket to see the garden and exterior anytime. Considering it is situated about 5 minutes walking from the appartment, you must not miss it.”

Church
“Brno's skyline dominant. Originally Romanesque rotunda, now Gothique cathedral with some Baroque signs, because of two Baroque reconstructions. You can enjoy a stunning view if you are lucky and the tower is open for visitors, but it's quite rare. You can enjoy a very nice panoramic view of Brno in the ​surrounding​ park, called Denis Gardens. It's also a very nice place to relax.”
