Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic. It has a population of around 380,000 people, and it's located in the beautiful natural environment between South Moravian vineyards and the Moravian Karst.

The city was founded about 1000 years ago. Today Brno is a mixture of many different architecture styles, there are many beautiful places. It's he home of great culture and countless beautiful buildings e.g. Veveří castle (near the Brno dam lake) and the Líšeň Castle. Furthermore Brno has a long tradition in motor racing (on the Masaryk Circuit), huge exhibitions and trade fairs (in the Central European Exhibition Centre), and as a vibrant university city with over 80,000 students. However Brno is not well discovered by tourists, which makes it a quieter place with very affordable living costs.

Public transport in Brno consists of 13 tram lines, 13 trolleybus lines (the largest trolleybus network in the Czech Republic) and almost 40 day and 11 night bus lines. The local public transport system is interconnected with regional public transport. Moreover road transport makes Brno an international crossroad of highways. There are two motorways on the southern edge of the city leading to Ostrava, Prague and Bratislava. Additionally air transport is enabled by two functional airports. One of them is the public international airport Airport Brno. Passenger traffic at this airport has experienced a large increase in recent years, regular flights fly from there to, for example, London, Rome, Milan and other cities. In addition cycling is widespread in Brno also due to lowland nature of the landscape. Existing tracks for cycling and roller skating in 2011 measured in total approximately 38 kilometres. There is also one long bikeway leading to Vienna, which is one of Brno's sister cities.
