Brno-Centre, the economic hub

This district coincides with the territory of the former city of Brno. This part of the city is Brno’s administrative, economic and cultural center. You’ll find numerous offices and institutions, as well as schools. This district covers the following areas: Brno Ville (Město Brno), Vieux Brno (Staré Brno), Štýřice, Veveri, Stranice – areas we recommend for accommodation.

These two districts make up the city’s historic center. The architecture is ancient, and most of the old buildings and houses are located here. You’ll find most of the city’s landmarks here, such as the Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul (also known as Petrov), which dominates the city and faces the Spielberg (Špilberk) fortress. The area is also teeming with cosy cafés and excellent restaurants.

You’re also close to the city’s other attractive districts. Accommodation in Brno Ville or Old Brno is not difficult, as there are many hostels in this area. So it’s the best place to stay when you want to visit the city and enjoy the historic center.

If you like lively, bustling neighborhoods that are dynamic both night and day, you now know where to stay in Brno.

In the opinion of local expatriates and travelers alike, these two neighborhoods should be avoided if you’re staying in Brno for any length of time. The city is very quiet and safe, but these two neighborhoods can be noisy and crowded after dark. Prefer the above-mentioned neighborhoods, which are either close to tourist and historical sites, or located in very quiet, pleasant areas.
