Masarykova | Shopping Street
Masarykova street is the major shopping street in the centre of Brno, connecting the train station with the Freedom Square. It has been established as a main trade route as early as the 12 th century and was once called Ferdinand Street. After the end of the monarchy it was renamed, commemorating Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, the first president of Czechoslovakia. All buildings in the street were errected after industrialisation between the late 19th and early 20th century. This street block is shaped by a number of expressive facades. The corner building on the left (Nr. 7) was designed in Art Nouveau style by architect Leopold Bauer. The modern functionalist building on the right edge was designed by Otto Eisler.
