Are you looking for an appropriate venue to organise a ball, a corporate party, a concert, a wedding reception or other cultural or social event? Why not choose the beautiful, neo-Renaissance Besední dům in the very centre of Brno?

3D tour of Besedný dům


The Besední dům’s pride is its Neo-Renaissance Hall, sought after for balls, concerts, conferences, large weddings and other ceremonies. After a hiatus of many years, it is now also hosting dance lessons for secondary-school students. The Hall can be joined to the Small Hall, linked by glass doors.

Beyond the Hall, other impressive rooms are available for hire. The attractive Foyer and courtyard can be used for a wedding ceremony or reception, a gathering over a glass of wine for VIP partners, exhibition openings and suchlike. The courtyard, dominated by a mature plane tree, is among Brno’s most charming hideaways. The Lounge on the first floor, with its own balcony, offers an intimate venue for a private business meeting, press conference, drinks reception or small wedding ceremony. The Hlaholna, or choir rehearsal room, can be hired out for a lecture or seminar. The Besední dům also features a top-notch recording studio.
