“The Ca­puchin monastery with the Find­ing of the Holy Cross Church in Brno is a unique mon­u­ment which will in­spire ev­ery lover of history and art. In the orig­i­nal early Baroque build­ing you can ad­mire the valu­able Ca­puchin li­brary with the orig­i­nal Ro­coco in­ven­tory and a ceil­ing fresco by Josef Stern. Any­one who likes spooky ex­pe­ri­ences will cer­tainly want to head to the cel­lar of the monastery, which of­fers a rar­ity of Euro­pean im­por­tance – a Ca­puchin crypt from the 18th cen­tury where the nat­u­rally mum­mi­fied re­mains of mem­bers of the Ca­puchin or­der, their pa­trons and prom­i­nent per­son­al­i­ties of Brno lie.”
