The good news is that Brno’s historical centre is very compact, and all major attractions are within walking distance. Because Brno is not overcrowded, there are no lines and you can visit all of them in a single day.

Villa Tugendhat UNESCO

This monument is well-known among architecture enthusiasts. The Czech Republic’s functionalist jewel is Czech UNESCO listed monument since 2001. Because villa is so popular, it is very difficult to get in there. You must book your visit approximately three months in advance, and you must keep a close eye on their reservation system because tickets are sold out in a matter of minutes. If you were unable to purchase tickets directly from their website, you can still purchase Brnopas along with an entrance ticket to Villa Tugendhat. If you did not get tickets to Villa, you can still visit Villa’s garden and see Villa from the outside and spend some time there.
