1. Brno: Historic Downtown Walking Tour

Stroll through the historic center of Brno, capital of Moravia, and admire rich architectural treasures by day or in the evening. Visit top attractions such as the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul. Follow your guide to piazzas such as Liberty Square (the main market square from the Middle Ages), Freedom Square and Capuchin Square (Kapucínské náměstí), where the crypt of the Capuchin Monastery holds the mummified remains of city noblemen. Go to the Vegetable Market, situated over a labyrinth of underground corridors that were used to store food, brew beer and mature wine. Look at the allegorical carvings of the Parnassus Fountain and admire the Renaissance facade of the Reduta Theatre, where Mozart once played. Hear the legend of the dragon and the wheel at the Old Town Hall, and see the New Town Hall, House of the Noblemen of Leipa, and Church of St. James before heading back along Joseph Street (Josefska). During festive holidays, such as Christmas and Easter, visit traditional markets and get to know more about the Czech traditions and customs.

Punctual, well-informed, inspiring, good German speaker, covered the most important stations in the city center in 2 hours, sufficient details, on request also about the country and its people. Great value for money due to the personal guidance. Too expensive for larger groups.

Very informative tour, you will learn about current and old facts of Brno as well as general Moravian culture and history. We were touched when the guide sang the original Moravian anthem. Recommend to everyone interested in history and architecture.

A very informative tour with a really friendly guide named Ilse. We were also alone with her because there were no other participants. Was really great.

A gentle stroll through the city centre with stops for historic details or anecdotes. My guide was very knowledgeable

Nice walking tour and we got a lot of information about Brno
