I wished that there are better english signages or volunteer-led tours of this place. I just have no idea what I am really looking at.

It is good museum, has many kinds of monuments, with organized way. But the way to reach, dosn't seems as entrance! It needs more care and attractive signs. Any way it is good for who like monuments.

This is part of the Castle feature, you can decide whether to do just the prison or incorporate the museum and tower. In our opinion there are many better attractions in Brno which give a better idea, the dummies have seen better days !!

Very nice historic preview. The only thing I was missing is some person I may ask and discuss historical question, in case of complicated Czech and Moravian history.

There are often very interesting and at other times also less interesting exhibitions - check the web or other info sources when in Brno or before planning a trip and then decide.

I have been to the castle many times and there have been a lot of really nice exhibitions (Japanese samurai swords, history of handbags, etc). I can highly recommend going to the exhibitions, but you should check in advance several things, 1) which exhibitions are there, 2) if you really need the ticket to the castle itself and 3) if...

It´s certainly worth going up the hill to appreciate the excellent view - four stars for that. By all means, avoid the "Babinsky Bistro. Zero stars for that. I went today, ordered a coffee for 28, paid with 50, got 12 returned instead of 22 but realised only on my way downhill. He gave himself a 30% "tip", despite the... More

This is a history of the town but specially the prison. Interesting but I think children would struggle and it really is expensive , which showed by how few visitors there were.

There is a green hill in the middle of the town and a fortress on the top. You can easily go back for centuries, you can find traces of Napoleon, baron Trenk, Babinsky - the famous robber and murder,, heroes of Italian revolution, cataacombs, singing bells. Allow yourself be surprised!
