Janáček lived in this little house from 1910 until his death in 1928. There is a modest exhibition and some interesting documentaries to see. It is a surprisingly small house for such a creative and important life. If you love Janáček and you're in Brno,...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.
