#LifeInCzechia What to do in Brno? Although there are great spots to chill, there are many options for cultural, gastro or sports events – as a student city, it is a hub for great ideas and even better events. Let us show you our favorites on this list!
Brno is a student city, so you can be sure there is always some cool event happening
Do you live in Brno? You are lucky because you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as beautiful flowers between January and October. Just come to the Zelný trh (or vegetable market) on workdays between 6 AM and 6 PM. Zelný trh is also open on Saturday between 6 AM and 2 PM and same during public holidays.
The entrance is free of charge. Keep an eye out for special days when there are also gastro stands or some celebrations. Once you come to Zelný trh, you can find A Baroque fountain by J. B. Fischer von Erlach at the same square. Read more here.
Brněnský Majáles takes place at the beginning of May. What can you expect? Big procession, music and lots of students! On top of that, well-known Czech artists. You can read more here.
The tickets cost 300 – 700 CZK, depending on your age.
Brno Expat Fair
The Brno Expat fair takes place every year in April. This year we also became a part of this great event – we had our stand on the 3rd floor at Tržnice. 1,300 expats visited that day and we were glad to get to know your stories and be helpful. Expat Fair is an event full of food, companies that help expats and seminars with the very same mission.
The purpose is to make expats feel more at home, help if needed and also to create a sense of community where you can get to know amazing people (as we did). Read more about the fair here.
