Underground

Jen několik měst v České republice se může pochlubit tak výjimečným fenoménem, jako je rozsáhlý labyrint podzemních chodeb, tunelů, štol, krypt a sklepů. Projekt zpřístupnění brněnského podzemí veřejnosti je rozdělen na několik etap. V první etapě byl 26. 11. 2010 otevřen Mincmistrovský sklep na Dominikánském náměstí. V druhé etapě byly zpřístupněny prostory rozsáhlého Labyrintu pod Zelným trhem. Třetí etapa byla událostí středoevropského rozměru, veřejnosti byl v červnu roku 2012 představen jeden z nejzajímavějších objevů z poslední doby – nález padesáti tisíc lidských ostatků v kostnici pod kostelem sv. Jakuba.

Quartet of unique underground reservoirs from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. Close to the very centre of Brno, buried beneath the grassy banks of Žlutý kopec, are situated historic underground reservoirs. For centuries the city had drawn its water from the Svratka River, but despite the expansion of the water supply network in 1853, the quantity and quality of water soon proved insufficient.

April 2011 marked the grand opening of a large maze of underground tunnels, corridors and rooms, known as the “Labyrinth underneath Zelný trh”. Visitors can look forward to mysterious nooks and crannies of medieval cellars. Surprises are prepared for underground world explorers and enthusiasts, including a genuine medieval pillory. Guided tours through the labyrinth are offered every 60 minutes to groups of five to twenty-five people. The entrance to the labyrinth can be found in the building at Zelný trh 21.

In 2012 the ossuary underneath the Church of St. James was opened to public, more than 10 years after this unique place was discovered during the survey of the Brno underground in 2001.

The Mint Master’s Cellar (in Czech: Mincmistrovský sklep or Sklepení domu mincmistrů) refers to historical basements discovered during the survey of the Brno underground in 1999. In 2007 the basement that was formerly located underneath the townhouse owned by mint master Bruno and, later, burgher Mikuláš od Věže, was opened to the public. Three years later renovated cellars of the New City Hall were connected to it.

10-Z is the code name of probably the most highly classified nuclear fallout shelter in Brno dating back to the communist era, whose purpose was to protect the city's and region's representatives.
