Situated at the heart of the eastern region of Moravia, with excellent transport links to Prague, Vienna, and Bratislava, Brno is a thriving center of business and education that combines a busy urban atmosphere with an authentic Czech personality and a nightlife that, while lively and varied, is considerably less raucous than the tourist-fueled clubs of the Czech capital. A strategically attractive location with strong links to three major central European capitals, Brno attracts considerable business and foreign investment, with key industries including manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and the services sector. The city also has a large student population and a healthy tourist industry, with colorful festivities taking place throughout the year. With all the modern amenities you could wish for and stunning landscapes right on your door, Brno offers a fabulous experience for expats in search of the "real" Czech Republic.
Making a new start in a foreign city is always easier with advice and support from somebody who knows the area. At InterNations we provide access to insights and recommendations from dozens of people living and working in Brno — from recent arrivals to long-time residents. By encouraging a policy of honesty, respect, and good manners, we hope to provide an open and welcoming platform for you to share your experiences and find the answers to any question you may have. You might be looking for practical guidance such as which districts offer the best international schools, how to go about obtaining a Czech driver's license, or where to obtain financial advice from a Czech-speaking professional. Not only are our members happy to help with such questions, our dedicated guide articles on life in the Czech Republic also cover many of these topics! Alternatively, you may want to use our community to make social connections — such as finding tips for the best venues to hear live music in the city, joining a sports club, or sampling some world famous Czech beer. Our InterNations Groups are the perfect chance to do so. Whether you're looking to make business or social connections, why not come along to one of our regular InterNations Official Events, hosted in a local venue for a relaxed and informal atmosphere?
