Jiri-Mahen Library, former Palais Schrattenbach, Brno

Today, the Palais Schrattenbach is home to the second largest public library in the Czech Republic, but it was once visited by Leopold Mozart and his children Wolfgang and Nannerl, who were 11 and 16 at the time.

Leopold took his children to Brno in October 1767 to escape the chickenpox epidemic in Vienna, where they were looked after by Count Schrattenbach, the bishop of Olomouc and later the Archbishop of Salzburg. The palace underwent serious restoration works in the late 20th century so you can still get a sense of the grace of the former palatial property.
