Brno, the Czech Republic’s second largest city, is packed with historic attractions that make it perfect for a holiday. Visitors fall in love year-round with the city’s incredible architecture and natural sceneries.
Brno is home to some stunning examples of European architecture. Check out the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, a national monument perched atop Petrov hill in the city centre. The Gothic 84-metre high towers are incredibly striking, while inside you’ll discover a captivating baroque interior. There’s also the UNESCO-listed Villa Tugendhat, a pioneering icon of modernism in Europe.
There are plenty of exciting things to do outside in Brno. Lužánky is the city’s biggest and oldest park and dates all the way back to the 18th century. You’ll find plenty of picturesque touches here including a wooden bridge across a river and a stone-cherub fountain. Just north of the city is the Moravian Karst – a protected nature reserve featuring hundreds of caverns and gorges open for public tours. It’s also home to the Macocha Abyss, a 138 metre deep gorge and one of the country’s biggest geological features. If caves aren’t your thing, the preserve also contains bicycle trails and hiking paths.
