BASIC INFORMATION ABOUT BRNO

Brno is a city in Moravia relatively close to Czechia’s borders with Austria and Slovakia. It is the country’s second largest city after Prague and the largest city of Moravia. City center with its cafes resembles Wien. You can get anywhere within half an hour by tram. And if you take your bike and go outside the city, you will find beautiful nature all around.  Trade fairs are not the only reason to visit Brno. The city boasts quite many architectural landmarks and enjoys a rich cultural life. For example, Špilberk Castle is one of the main landmarks dominating the cityscape of the Moravian metropolis or Villa Tugendhat which is a pioneering example of modernist architecture in Europe. In 2001 Villa Tugendhat was inscribed by UNESCO in the World Heritage List. Brno is the center of research and innovation.
