Brno is the second largest city of the Czech Republic by population and area, the largest Moravian city, and the historical capital city of Moravia. The city of 400,000 inhabitants lies in the center of Europe and is easily accessible by car, train and plane.
Matched with a beauty queen like Prague – and without its own Charles Bridge to boast about – Brno is the Czech Republic’s perennial underdog. But spend just 24 hours in the country’s second-biggest city and you’ll quickly discover it has a lot going for it. – Mark Baker, editor of LonelyPlanet.com
You will fall in love with local bars (as recommended by NY Times), restaurants and coffee houses that people from all over the world are getting familiar with.
Top 5 reasons to visit Brno
Brno is a beautiful rustic city loaded with charm and the most wonderful architecture, and if this isn’t enough, just a short drive outside the city limits is a beautiful countryside where you see landscapes that are like out of a painting or a movie, which actually some of them are in some movies now. – Cheryl, Canada, TripAdvisor
4. Low prices – Unlike Prague, Brno is very student-friendly when it comes to money. Restaurants and bars aren’t overpriced and most of them make special offers for students at least once a week. And hey, didn’t you hear? Beer is cheaper than water in Czechia.
5. Delicious food you can hardly find anywhere else – There is hardly a better place to experience the authentic Czech culture, history and traditions than here. With all types of people, Brno brings an amazing variety to their food and restaurant industry too.
Moving around Brno
Brno is a compact city and you will not need to use your car at all. You can manage to visit most of the interesting places on foot and by using the excellent public transportation system – 5 days ticket costs around 9 EUR, one day ticket less than 4 EUR.
