The charm of the second largest city of the Czech Republic may not be immediately apparent, but Live in Brno for several days, and truly Bohemian spirit of the city will captivate you. This is a good way to get acquainted with the life of the Czech Republic without encountering crowds of tourists, both in Prague. Old Town is filled with bars and restaurants; here stand alongside Art Nouveau building, Empire and Neoclassical. There are lots of leafy parks. Be sure to take a picture of a local landmark, the statue Dragon Brno, suspiciously similar to a crocodile.
