During that time the importance and role of Špilberk have changed substantially. The original royal castle and stately home of Moravian margraves gradually turned into a huge Baroque fortress, the heaviest prison in the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and then a barracks. In 1960 Špilberk became the seat of the Brno City Museum. This important cultural and historic centre of Brno, surrounded by extensive gardens, provides ideal premises for holding weddings, company events, concerts or theatre performances.
