Basic Facts The second largest city in the Czech Republic and Moravia`s traditional capital.

The city`s skyline is dominated by the Spilberk Castle where an early-Gothic palace with two chapels is still standing. Later on, the castle was converted into a baroque fortress, and in the 19th century, it became known as the infamous "Jail of Nations".

Brno is also a major center of modern architecture. German architect Mies van der Rohe`s 1929 villa Tugendhat (UNESCO) is an outstanding example of functionalist architecture and a milestone in the development of modern architecture worldwide. Among other modernist landmarks is the Brno Exhibition Center, whose set of buildings (built over the period of forty years, from 1930s to 1960s) makes up a harmonious whole; over 50 fairs and exhibitions take place here annually.

Brno also offers destinations outside the city center – the city ZOO, motor sports enthusiasts flock to the Automotodrom Brno with the new Masaryk Circuit – a venue of the World Moto Grand Prix.
