Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic and a very attractive place. The two hills of Petrov and Spilberg dominate the town. On top of Petrov you find the dome of Saint Peter and Paul, on top of Spilberg a series of baroque fortifications. In the centre of the city at the foot of the hills, renaissance houses and palaces as well as interesting churches abound. Highhlights include the house of lords of Lipe, the Ditrichstein palace, as well as the house of the Lords of Kunstat and the old gothic town hall, where the Brno Dragon hangs in the throughway.

Brno is also an important cultural centre. It is the residence of the State philmaronic orchestra Brno, famous Janacek (string) quartet, the Moravian Land museum with dependent Memorial of Leos Janacek, Etnographic museum, Mendelianum (museum of Gregor Mendel) and Pavilion Anthropos (exhibition of prehistory of mankind).
