Brno – This year's Christmas markets will also enjoy Brňáni in the new district of the Dominican market. On Wednesday morning, after several months of restoration, representatives of the city opened a ceremony. In the future, two fountains will be added to the square.
In the past, overcrowded parking has become a space for relaxation and getting to know people in the city center after extensive repairs. "Due to the reconstruction, the Dominican square approached its first republican form. The shape of the square is not definitive, but it will add it to the element of water, and I believe that people prefer to use the Christmas market," said the mayor of Brno, Petr Vokřál.
During the restoration of the market, archaeologists discovered hundreds of unique archaeological finds. They found, for example, the foundations of the Roman tower of the thirteenth century. Here they are considered one of the oldest stone buildings in Brno.
Precisely because of the archaeological findings they preserved, they did not allow the planting of four planned trees in the northern third of the market. The builders had to make a compromise with them, and the trees were sown in the middle of the square.
Archaeological findings only affected the final shape of the square. The date of completion of the construction was not renewed due to them. "Most of the work was completed two weeks before the deadline. Everyone tried to prepare Christmas markets on the market, but this was done," said Deputy Director Richard Mázek.
The total remediation of the Dominican market was 73.5 million crowns. People looked at the square. Brněnans could comment on the idea of moving on to the statue of Joseph II. In the vote on this leave, this proposal was rejected.
