The City of Brno
The city of Brno is famed for its beauty and vibrant atmosphere. However, it’s also widely recognized as the tech, and in particular, game dev capital of the Czech Republic. A number of domestic and international companies have called Brno their base, and the city visibly prospers thanks to them.
If you are looking for a bit of high-quality tourism before or after the Conference, there are a number of outstanding historical monuments and points of interest you definitely shouldn’t miss. Here are some of them:
Surrounded by a beautiful park, this 13th-century royal castle watches over the city of Brno like a silent guardian. A visit of the castle promises the best view in the city and Christmas for the history buffs.
With its 84 meter high gothic towers, Petrov cathedral is a very difficult monument to miss. Much like Castle Špilberk, Petrov is an indispensable part of the Brno panorama and a cultural treasure of the Czech people.
A unique burial ground beneath the Church of St. James is a bizarre and fascinating sight. The second largest ossuary in Europe is as much a tourist attraction as it is a place of reverence.
North of Brno, Moravian Karst is a protected landscape area encompassing over 1100 caverns and natural gorges. Many of these beautiful places are open to tourists, and we definitely recommend visiting them.
