Nice walk around grounds

We didn't go into the castle but the walk up from the old town and around the grounds was nice in a crisp sunny day. Good views over the town below.

Walking around or inside this castle is always relaxing. You have to pay to get inside the actual castle but walking around in the grounds is free. Fantastic views and interesting history!

It's a wonderful place, has a little bit of everything,some history, a bit of traditional art and a dash of modern art. Although, text on the wall describing the exhibits should also have an English version, so we don't have to carry around a translation prospect that's given to you at the entrance of every room.

It's a Royal Castle for the city Brno with casemates, and an extensive park. Many local use the park for walking and enjoying the city view. It is easily accessible from old town around 1km (15min walk). There is cafe you can sit inside and outside to enjoy some coffee and wine overlooking the awesome view of Brno city.

If you want to see all of Brno, climb mild hill. It is sorounded by charming park and affords the view of entire city. Interesting museum inside.

Didn't see exhibitions. Walk up to and around the castle a good way to spend a couple of hours. Good views of Brno.
