With a skyline dominated by the imposing Špilberk Castle and the soaring twin-spires of Peter and Paul Cathedral, Brno has an attractive and historic city centre. The name, Brno, might sound like a crossword anagram, but the Czech Republic’s second largest city and capital of Moravia is a vibrant, yet traditional, place. Brno has stunning architecture, great museums, a creepy crypt, a gorgeous lake – just a tram ride away – and an exciting, beer-filled bar scene without heaving crowds.
