The second largest town in the country and Moravia’s
traditional capital, Brno was also the historic seat of the Premyslid dynasty.
King Wenceslas I awarded Brno municipal status as early as 1243.
The city’s skyline is dominated by the Špilberk castle, where an early-Gothic palace with two chapels is still standing. Later on, the castle was converted into a baroque fortress, and in the 19th century, it became known as the infamous “Jail of Nations”.
The Petrov hill is topped by the Gothic cathedral of Sts. Peter and Paul. At the beginning of the 16th century, the Old Town City Hall portal was built, featuring a late Gothic peculiarity – a crooked pinnacle. Worth at least a brief mention are other historical buildings – the monastery and convent buildings of religious orders, the Parnas fountain in the Baroque-naturalist style, the bishop’s court, the Renaissance palace of the Lords of Lipá and Kunštát, church of St. Jakub (James), and the Hausperg Palace, nowadays the seat of the Goose on a String Theater.
