Situated in the region of Moravia, the charming city of Brno is a less well-known, but equally attractive destination. Boasting no fewer than 12 universities, Brno has been dubbed the Moravian Manchester and has a youthful and distinctly laid-back feel. Relatively small in size, all of the main attractions are easily accessible by foot.
