2 DAYS TRIP – Brno, Olomouc & Ostrava

Day 1


The vibrant city of Brno /2 hrs from Prague, 90 mins from Vienna or Bratislava/

History, modern architecture, gastronomy and nightlife converge in the Czech Republic’s second-largest city. Brno’s landscape spans centuries and styles, from the mysterious labyrinth of cellars several metres underground to the gem of functionalistic architecture, Tugendhat Villa. An atomic bomb shelter-turned-attraction now houses exhibitions and a hostel in 10-Z Shelter. Take a city walk through the former Cabbage Market and stop into St. Jabob´s Church with the second-largest ossuary in Europe.
Side trips from Brno include the caves of Moravian Karst, a hike through the Pálava hills, a bike trip around the chateau grounds of the Lednice – Valtice complex or drive through Moravian Slovakia – a region where folk traditions and folklore are an integral part of life. You can learn about the process of indigo dyeing in Strážnice.

Day 2


UNESCO Olomouc

UNESCO Olomouc – the spiritual centre of Moravia /50 mins from Brno/
Love the visual appeal of Prague, but wish you could see it without the crowds? Olomouc (nicknamed “Little Prague”) is perfect for you! The Holy Trinity Column marks the historical heart of this Baroque town filled with elegant stone fountains. Try the local speciality, Olomouc tvarůžky, a deliciously pungent cheese legendary for its distinctive aroma. For a more gourmet dining experience, book a table at Entrée Restaurant.


Ostrava– the industrial heart of the east /60 mins from Olomouc/

Learn about the unique industrial heritage of the Czech Republic’s northeast region along more than 30 stops the Moravian-Silesian Technical Trail. The city of Ostrava has transformed the Michal Mine and Lower Vítkovice area from their coal mining past (1828-1998) into a unique educational, social, and cultural centre. Climb the Bolt Tower and visit Landek Park, where you can be a miner and an archaeologist in the same day.
