Tips for activities in Brno

Tugendhat Villa – Our most important functionalist monument, designed by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, which is included on the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites. It is definitely worth visiting. The top two floors are comprised of representational, social and living rooms, and the ground floor is filled with technical equipment that even today's modern buildings should not be ashamed of. Tickets are sold out half a year in advance, we recommend fast action.
