Tugendhat Villa

On Cernopolni Street we can find one of the pivotal works of world Functionalist architecture, and the most important European work of the German architect Mies van der Rohe. It is all the more valuable for the fact that this is his only pre-war work which has remained in its original state. Construction of the villa began in June 1929. The Tugendhats moved into the villa in December 1930, but were forced to flee from the Nazis in 1938. At present the house is managed by the Museum of the City of Brno, which has allowed the public to make visits. The building is listed in the UNESCO World Heritage.
