In the very heart of Brno, near the Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul, we have reconstructed the beautiful 19th-century Art Nouveau palace where Hugo Haas lived. Residents there thus become part of a site with a truly unique atmosphere and history. Flats on the top floors have large terraces overlooking Špilberk Castle and surroundings.
Rezidence Biskupská 8 in the very heart of Brno offers a unique opportunity for those who are looking for something extra-special. The building’s location and prestige combined with its historic and aesthetic value will meet the requirements of even the most demanding clients.


The Art Nouveau building was officially approved at the beginning of the 20th century. It was built on Františkova, which is the historical name of the Denisovy Sady Park, used until 1919 by Emperor Francis I. The Art Nouveau building was also made famous by Hugo Haas, the famous Czech (then US based) actor Hugo Haas, who lived there. Haas starred in films such as “Bonanza”, “King Solomon’s Mines” and the classic Czech film “Skeleton on Horseback”. On the facade of the building you can find a memorial plaque in his honour.

In recent years the building has been unoccupied, and so today it has returned its character as a historic monument, located directly under the stunning episcopate of the Cathedral of Saint Peter and Paul.

The reconstruction has resulted in 24 exclusive apartments for new owners. The complex is nestled in the midst of Brno’s most important historical monuments with a view of the Petrov hill, Šilinger Square and nearby Špilberk Castle. The project is uniquely characterised by its spacious terraces on the top floors, which face the inner courtyard and provide direct visual contact with the Cathedral of Saint Peter and Paul.

The building features high-quality fittings, hardwood floors, wooden windowpanes, wooden sliding doors, Laufen bathroom equipment, tiles by Promise with systemic tiling and frost-resistant ceramic tiles on the balconies and terraces.

There are all kinds of civic amenities in the immediate vicinity of the building including: kindergartens, schools, medical facilities, a cinema, theatre, post office, shops and restaurants.

All in all, a truly unique living experience.


In terms of population and size Brno is the second-largest city in the Czech Republic and the largest I the Moravian region. The city lies at the confluence of the Svratka and Svitava rivers and has approximately 380,000 inhabitants.

The most significant sights of the city include the castle and fortress Špilberk and the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul on Petrov Hill. The other large preserved castle in the city is Veveří Castle near the Brno Dam Lake. Another important monument of Brno is the functionalist Villa Tugendhat which has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. Brno is surrounded by relatively pleasant nature, one of the especially attractive areas nearby being the Moravian Karst.

Sports enthusiasts will also be impressed by Brno, particularly golfers who can avail of the wonderful Kaskáda Golf Course.

Purchase procedure


At your request, we will provisionally reserve the apartment in which you have expressed interest for a period of seven days so that you have time to study the project documentation, verify possibilities of financing, etc. 
An oral reservation can be provided by means of an in-person meeting with our sales agent at the headquarters of our company (in the case of apartments in the preparation phase / under construction) or when viewing the given apartment (in the case of completed projects).


In the event that you decide to purchase an apartment, we will send you a draft Reservation Contract.
The standard reservation period is 30 days following signing of the contract. In legitimate cases, that period can be extended upon mutual agreement.
The reservation fee is CZK 200,000 for each individual unit.
An annex to the reservation contract comprises sample text of the subsequent contract, i.e. the Contract on a Future Purchase Contract (in the case of an apartment in the preparation phase / under construction) or the Contract on Transfer of Unit Ownership (in the case of completed projects).


This contract is concluded within the reservation period and primarily defines the following:


This contract is concluded within the reservation period (in the case of completed projects) or within the period agreed in the Contract on a Future Purchase Contract (in the case of apartments in the preparation phase / under construction). The subject of transfer, purchase price excl. and incl. VAT, means of payment (the buyer’s own financial means / mortgage loan), date of handover of the unit and other requisites necessary for transfer of unit ownership are precisely specified in the contract.
Within the Purchase Contract, it is possible to arrange holding of the purchase price in escrow. This service is provided free of charge by our company’s contractual law firm. In the event that the client requires a different escrow holder (a different law firm, bank, notary), the client shall arrange escrow at his/her own expense.


Handover of the unit follows signing of the Contract on Transfer of Unit Ownership and payment of the full purchase price. The latest possible date of handover is specified in the Purchase Contract as being within 20 days from depositing of the deed of ownership in the property register in favour of the new owner.
