I did have a chuckle the other day when I read your review of Brno, and the retaliation. Though obviously a little harsh it isn't too far off my experiences of the city. I visited it a few times and can't say I was particularly taken with it.
The view from the Cathedral is nice, and it is worth having a look around the Mendel Museum
, if you have an interest in science. There is also a the odd spectacle of the 'Brno Dragon'
in the lobby of the town hall. Aside from that there is not much else to see (Excluding the Tugendhat Villa which is rather wonderful)
Trams do seem to have taken over the city centre, and the station area is a little grim, but the transport connections are better than anywhere else in Moravia.
Still I would recommend staying in one of the other Moravian WHS instead of Brno. Olomouc being the best bet, but Telc is also lovely and you can actually stay in a wing of the palace
