We prepared 14 days of great activities. For example you can look forward to horror night game, typical winetasting in the famous Czech wine region, sightseeing or just chilling at a lake. During the night we will enjoy the rich nightlife of Brno, as well few special activities such as tram party. Tram party? By combining the two most typical things from Brno, beer and trams, we create the unique tram party with free beer on board!

Brno is great in its own way: a lot of students, cosy cafés, decent prices, amazing functionalist buildings and perfect places for chilling. Also, Brno is not eaten up by tourists so you can experience an authentic Czech city. Be prepared to taste a great Czech beer - in restaurants a large beer is cheaper than a small bottle of mineral water!


In the midst of some stunning countryside strung with vineyards lies Mikulov in the shade of its own castle. Here you can admire some of the many historic sites the town offers or enjoy a glass of superb wine. In short, Mikulov is a town you definitely shouldn’t miss on a journey through South Moravia.


You can't find many places in the world which have received such care as the elegant area around the spectacular Lednice and Valtice chateau. An absolutely unique park has been created here over the centuries, full of rare tree species, romantic buildings, fishponds and beautiful little corners. The Lednice-Valtice Complex, which has been included in the UNESCO list, is known as the Garden of Europe to this very day.


There aren’t many places in the Czech Republic that can boast such a beautiful and diverse landscape as the Pálava Hills, with their snow-white rocks, springtime mosaic of blooming steppes and vineyards spanning across sun-drenched hillsides.

Slavkov u Brna

Small town but with big history! The Battle of Three Emperors (one of them was Napoleon) took place here in 1805. The place is often referred to as a "piece of France" nearby Brno.
