GUIDE TO THE FORGOTTEN HISTORY
© Museum of the Brno Region, Czech Republic, 2017
Honoring the typography and style of the beginning of the 20th century, we present the forgotten roots of Brno, the South Moravian capital city.
Its present-day appearance was profoundly influenced by the rapid onset and development of the textile industry in the second half of the 19th and the first half of the 20th centuries.
With our guide in hand, visitors are invited to an exciting tour of Brno exploring the city’s face once significantly shaped by three extraordinary families of textile entrepreneurs.
