Getting from Brno Airport to Brno City Centre

Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic, located close to the borders of Austria and Slovakia. For the best vantage point of views overlooking the city, head to the top of the steeple at the Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul which also houses some notable religious artworks. Discover the town’s medieval history with a tour of Brno’s underground passageways and cellars, or by visiting the eerie Brno Ossuary. When you’ve finished your day of exploring, head to one of the many local breweries or up-and-coming restaurants, and as the coffee capital of the country, don’t forget to sample a freshly roasted cup or two!
