More than one commander has “broken his teeth” about the strong walls of Brno in the past. The city was tested for strength by the Hussites, Swedes, Turks and the Prussian army. Only the cunning Napoleon did not besiege the bastions in vain, but simply ordered to blow up a strong ring of defensive walls. Today, a ring road runs on the site of the former fortifications.
Brno is surrounded by a picturesque green plain, in which medieval castles are lost. And in the city itself, tourists will definitely have something to occupy their time with: ancient squares and neighborhoods beckon to look around the corner, make another turn and get off the planned route. The city cathedrals still remember the melodious chants of the past centuries. Their creepy crypts, as before, are full of dark secrets.
