As part of celebrations next weekend of the 369th anniversary of the defence of the city against Swedish forces, Brno is offering 25 people the chance to spend the night in tough conditions in former dungeons at Špilberk castle. The dungeons, which were last used in the 19th century, are said to have been the most feared in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A night sleeping on wooden boards and without electricity will cost CZK 250.
