Tugendhat Villa - Review
The Villa has a bit of a dramatic history. It was commissioned by Fritz Tugendhat for him and his wife to live in on land that had been gifted to him by his in-laws as a wedding present. When completed, the building was a masterpiece of revolutionary new modernist architecture – one of the first of it’s kind in Europe. Unfortunately, Tudhenhat enjoyed his place for only 8 years before the Munich Agreement dissolved Czechoslovakia in 1938, causing the family to flee the country. They never returned. The Nazis used it during the war… and the Soviets after – a time when it underwent quite a lot of damage and theft. It further came into prominence in when the documents to divide the land into Slovakia and the Czech Republic were signed here. In 1994, the house was opened as a museum and in 2001, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s also played a prominent role in the movies as the villains’ lair in Hannibal Rising.

Tugendhat Villa, Brno Reviews
A very different architectural experience. It was interesting to see how people with almost indefinite resources managed to preserve an uncluttered living space. Cheers to all the IKEA fans!!! The building materials inside are very expensive, so pay attention to what the guide says, because you would never guess unless you know. The Brno city view from the living room is priceless. Also, they will show you the room where an amicable "divorce"" was signed by the Czech and the Slovak Nations, making the former Czechoslovakia two different countries. Email Villa Tugendhat for reservation of you 90-minute guided tour, they respond very quickly. Also, the Villa is easily reachable by 20 minute walk from Brno Main Train Station, there is no need to drive a car.
A landmark that isn't cared for appropriately, but still a landmark. It takes your breath away. One tip - if you're not going for a private tour and aren't a pro photographer, it's not really worth buying the photo pass, because the time you spend in each of the rooms is limited, and they're not so big as to ensure there won't be people in your shots. Three stars because of the attitude of the caretakers, and because of all the bs you experience before you even enter the house.
Modernist villa by Mies van der Rohe - Must see in Brno. You need to book 3-4 months in advance which is insane if you compare how they do it in versailles, casa batllo or chenonceaux. You can see garden without any booking though. During our 30minute visit of garden i could clearly saw through glass facade there was nobody inside the house. I assume they are not willing tourists inside... If you buy key holder with "less is more" writing on it you will not just make something bad for the planet but also make Mies turn in his grave as it strongly contradicts itself.
Good place to visit with very much timeless architecture. It's hidden between other houses around and could be tricky to find without signs pointing in the direction. Villa itself is equipped with original almost 100 years all furniture and still looks very modern. Great for design enthusiasts.
Beautiful modernist villa. 50 Čk ticket to see it from garden point of view. To see the inside you have to book visit few months before.
