Old Town Hall - Review
This Town Hall, built in the 13th century, holds a greater sway on the imagination of Brno’s citizens than one would expect. A number of myths and tales surround it that the townspeople are only too glad to romanticise over – and the evidence of these legends can be seen with your own eyes. For example, consider the wheel in the town hall passage; Jiri Burk the wheelmaker put it there as the result of a silly bet challenging him to cut down a tree, make a wheel and have it hung up at the hall – all within 12 hours. He won the bet. See the crooked turret at the top? AntonínPilgram, master craftsman, built it that way as the town councilors who’d promised him a handsome reward for that work failed to pay him. Lastly, see the Brno Dragon? Get a local to tell you this one – and be accommodating of the fact that the hanging dragon looks an awful lot like a crocodile. For most of it’s history this was the only place in Brno where anything of significance happened – court, council, city permissions and so on and so forth.. The Town Hall is also popular for it’s magnificent viewpoint. Its architecture has Renaissance, Baroque and Gothic influences.

Old Town Hall, Brno Reviews
We got a free walking tour that day. And there were only us, luckily as we could ask the guide a lot. His name is Martin. He is very friendly, hat very good energy. Nice to meet him.
Brno is amazing city, second capital after Prague, old town hall is kind of freaky with crocodile but we loved, yeah indeed, also architecture of the old town is great, city is very clean with good and friendly people. Take care with exchange office ,and watch out when you change money ; ) Everywhere is different look for your bather solution.
Great view, I totally recommend to go there, the only problem is that the exhibition is only in Czech, no English. But people usually go there for the view not to read. Don't miss sgraffito on the building.
Great view from the tower
Over 170 steps, great view, old interior, history exhibitions, stories, dragon, wheel. And lots of great souvenirs!
