The city of Brno was on my way to Poland during my short trip to the East. In my three day stay, not once did I manage to correctly pronounce the name of the place, but it didn't keep me from enjoying the quieter environment compared to the hectic tourist location of Prague. The city center, the capital of Moravia, offers various historical monuments, including several churches and a cathedral. Also nearby you will find the Villa Tugendhat which was built in 1920 and classified by UNESCO as a monument of modern architecture. I stayed in the cheapest hostel, open only in summer when it is out of season, a school and a gym ... Unfortunately I have no address, sorry! (Correction: Thanks to Jose Luis I can tell you now that this hostel was on Janska street!). To put it briefly, Brno is a nice place to stop in to get know the real Czech Republic rather the typical destinations that everyone might think of visiting.
This church, in the centre of town, is called "The Church of Saint John and Minorite Monastery". The architecture is nothing special, and I have not seen the inside, but the light fell on the building at just the right moment, and with the group of soldiers in the foreground, I knew I had to capture it.
Market cabbages of Brno, in the province of Moravia, has existed since the thirteenth century. It's located in the historical center of the city. This market is full of fresh produce and you can find all kinds of vegetables and fruits. It is totally amazing considering its size. It is as great as it is small. Countless tons of white peppers are piled on shelves. It is a sight to behold, for the color and quality. So glad to buy vegetables there.
