The beautiful city that is home to the Barceló Brno Palace is in a region full of vineyards in a picturesque and romantic land of castles, legends and spa towns. This fairytale wedding setting cries out for a follow up visit to the city and surrounds.
The capital of South Moravia also has a rich cultural heritage – influenced by a range of central European civilisations – borne out by its monuments, buildings and powerful history, marked by two world wars. This is also the birthplace of Milan Kundera, one of the country's most important writers. It may be the host of famous universities that have influenced the contributions made by other illustrious figures to the city.
Against this backdrop of learning, Brno was also the country's main economic driver during the industrial revolution of the 19th century. Its industrial past makes current day Brno a major business and trade fair city. Moreover, the Brno circuit hosts the Czech Republic MotoGP every year, which is another reason to visit. Its central European location offers easy access from international airports and by road from Vienna. The latter is another imperial city you may like to include in your visit or romantic honeymoon.
Originally built as a fortress, the castle ended up as the most terrifying prison in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Today it houses the Brno Municipal Museum, with its underground catacombs and torture instruments.
Surrounded by the bishops' residence, this cathedral is the city's main landmark and is located on Petrov Hill.
Art is everywhere in Brno, borne out by its wide range of museums. Don't miss the Moravian Museum, the Mendel Museum, the Brno Municipal Museum, the Leos Janacek Memorial, the Anthropos Pavilion, the Moravian Gallery or the Technical Museum.
Sixty-three meters high, this is the ideal place for views over the whole city.
The Barceló Brno Palace hotel also invites you to take a trip to the picturesque Lednice-Valtice region, an area of castles and vineyards where you can enjoy the magnificent summer residence of the Liechtenstein family and try some fine central European wines.
