Key Facts, International Travel, and Things to Do

    Background

    Brno is the Czech Republic’s second largest city, and the historical capital city of the Margraviate of Moravia. Resting at the confluence of the rivers Svitava and Svratka, Brno is an idyllic place to lose yourselves. Settlements in this region date back to the 11th Century, affording the area a rich and varied history. The architecture of the city demonstrates the varied past, with the Baroque-style Cathedral of St Peter and Paul juxtaposing the high-rise modern buildings in the city centre.

    From shopping, to eclectic hanging sculptures, an astronomical clock and beautiful palaces, a visit to Brno during your travels to the Czech MotoGP is going to be entertaining for all. Explore the legends of this city, walk down the cobbled streets, or simply enjoy one of the famous Czech beers and delicious food, before – or after – the race weekend.

    Things To Do

    If the way to a person’s heart is through their stomach, then the Czech Republic has a number of ways to get there, and Brno is one of the greatest places to experience it. But gastronomy isn’t where it starts or ends in Brno.

    Known for its many legends and sinewy streets, with gorgeous architecture, Brno is a great place to take a walk through. Try to find the Brno dragon at Town Hall, or stand in front of the curious astronomical clock, which releases marbles once a day. Take your pick from the many historical villas and castles to visit, or walk the pedestrian cobbled streets in the town centre for some window shopping.
