Snapshot: Brno, Czech Republic

Snapshots are mini town/city guides for smaller places or cities I have only experienced briefly. Here’s a little snapshot of Brno.

Brno at it's best

What are one’s first impressions of Brno?

Heavy on churches and tram lines. If you’re coming from Prague, you will think the city is rather mediocre. If you’re coming from Bratislava, you might consider Brno a slight upgrade. Outside the summer months there are virtually no tourists.

What are the women like?

Brno is home to 80,000 students, several thousand of which our horny foreigners on Erasmus. Personally, I think Czech chicks (on average) are a little over-rated, but that’s only in comparison to other

Eastern European countries. This doesn’t change the fact the country produces some of the best looking women on the planet. The standard here is still much higher than in the West and sexy girls are not hard to find. A more detailed description of the Czech ‘look’ will feature in my upcoming Prague city guide. The good thing about Czech chicks in Brno is they have less exposure to foreign men than in the capital (flagalicious). That said, at night time it’s still a little more difficult to pick up here than in non-EU capitals in Europe. Because of the college scene, everything revolves around social circles. Social proof is crucial. Not a bad city to pipeline. During the day, hit up the universities. Getting laid here shouldn’t be difficult if you have a few days, Czechs are pretty liberal.

Where should I go at night-time?

I rate Brno’s night-life over Bratislava’s. There’s something going down every night in the city, but the venue changes depending on what night of the week

it is. Most places don’t get going until quite late. The weekend is open season. Monday nights and Thursday nights the place to be is  Livingstone. Your best bet is to just ask around though, students will give you the best advice. Alternatively, check out the Brno Night Life facebook page. If you’re on a date or want to buy/smoke weed head to the Hobbit. It’s around Maresova street with a tiny green sign outside it. Most locals don’t even know about this underground gem.

The Bottom Line

Nothing compared to Prague, but a worthwhile stopover.

    Nice report man, these snapshot guides are pretty useful. Just one quick question…

    You say social circle is the best way to get laid in university cities like Brno, without so many tourists. Pipelining aside, what would be the best way to get yourself integrated into some kind of social circle, esp if you’re only in town for a few days?? I should add I’m a few years older than most students (26). I love these medium-sized university cities and would appreciate any info on how to pick up flags in as many of them as possible!!

      Buy a round for the table….quickly make friends like that plus it costs you $10 the most. In USA that $10 will get only myself a drink, lol. Plus you can NOT beat Czech beer, hands down the best in the world….next to the Germans.

      It’s really hard to find. It underground and the door looks like a normal door. There’s only a tiny sign for it.
