The second largest city of the Czech Republic is the historical, cultural, industrial, economic, fair and administrative center of Moravia.

For instance the legendary historic center of the city with a number of churches and palaces, where Gothic goes hand in hand with Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau; a striking view from the terraces of the Špilberk fortress or from the tower of the Old Town Hall; a mysterious Capuchin tomb; interesting museums and theatres; tranquil parks and busy streets; the joy of meetings with a touch of nostalgia. Brno is also tied to a seventy-year-old tradition of fairs and exhibitions; the Fair Grounds are a unique display of the functionalistic style, which made Brno a modern South Moravian metropolis. Also, you should not miss Tugendhat Villa, a memorial to the world's modern architecture by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, included in the UNESCO world cultural heritage list. After all, Brno becomes the capital of the world's graphic design every two years.
Thanks to its position midway between other European capitols - Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava - the city is a clear starting point for numerous programs, including tours of the wine region. The west of the city also offers quick connections to Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. Visitors can also use Brno’s Tuřany International Airport which, among its standard services, likewise provides links to the town, taxi and auto rental services. Brno, however, is more than a big town with excellent connections, it resides in a line of attractive tourist destinations and, thanks to its rich nature, countless forests and rugged landscape, is a much sought after place for rest and relaxation. One of the most frequently visited sights in the area is that of the historic battle of Austerlitz, where the French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte fought one of the most famous battles of his career.
