This is a small house with the composer's piano and some artifacts on display. It won't take you long - a half-hour at most - to examine them. But if you love this great composer's music it's worth a short trip out of your way...More

Not that far from the center of town by foot is Jancek's most charming house where he spent his last, fruitful, years. After a delay to ring the appropriate bells, we were greeted by a charming hostess (I think we spoke German after mutual greeting...More

Janacek's house is a well-presented museum, including a room with his piano, beautifully preserved. Next door is the Janacek Archives which is by far the most important collection anywhere of his manuscripts and letters. Friendly, welcoming, enthusiastic and very well-informed staff. A superb place for...More
