City Guide Brno Czech Republic


Brno is the second-largest city in the Czech Republic. And although it cannot compete with the capital Prague, Brno is still a pleasant student city where you can certainly enjoy yourself for a day or two. It is the perfect stopover on your way to/from Prague or Vienna. From Brno you can also make easy day trip to the rest of the Morovia region like the village Telc or Olomouc, or explore the wineyards at the heart of the Czech's wine region. Another option is to explore Moravian Karst, a protected nature reserve famous for its limestone formations, caves, and the Macocha Abyss.
