Brno is the second largest city in Czech Republic, located only about 2 hours ride from three European capitals – Prague, Vienna and Bratislava. They say that Brno is a city made for every man – it is a place without much crowd and buzz, ideal for those who are fans of drinks, history and party.
It is a city where you can see the true spirit of Czech Republic, abounding in numerous attractions like Habsburg residences, opera houses, communist concert halls and symbols of functionalist architecture.
The Spilberk castle and St. Peter and Paul Cathedral are one of the most significant historic monuments in the city. The cathedral was built back in the 14th and 15th century. The Villa Tugendhat, built during the 19th century, is a perfect example of the functionalist architecture and in the 2002 was listed as a part of the UNESCO World Heritage. One of the main attractions for tourists is the Old City House from the 13th century, built in the gothic style, behind which is the stuffed „dragon“ that represents the symbol of the city. Capuchin Square and monastery, Governor’s palace and Parnas fountain are just some of the attractions Brno has to offer when it comes to historic and cultural heritage of the city.

To add to the greatness of this city, Brno is way more relaxing city in comparison to Prague and people who live there are much more friendly and kinder.
