How to get to Brno from Prague

You can take a train from the main train station in Prague to Brno. It is a the most used train trip in the country.

While there are many different companies, I suggest using České Dráhy. You can book on-line here or go to the CD desk at the train station.

Saint Peter and Paul Cathedral is a gothic cathedral that you cannot miss. It is in the center of the city and you will get some beautiful pictures from close and afar. It is located here.

Spilberk Castle is in the center of the city and it is a beautiful heritage monument to see. It was first established in the 13th century and has played many roles over time. It was once a castle of royalty and then it went to a prison during the Austro-Hungarian period. You can see the hours of operation and directions to the castle here.

Luzanky park is a beautiful spot for a picnic. The garden area and pathways are very tranquil and is an awesome spot to sit and take in the beauty. I loved to grab a coffee and have a morning walk there. It is located here.

The main square, Svobody Namesti, is a happening place with tons of shops, cafes and pubs. You will definitely find some fun places to hang out here. It is located here.

April and May are when the trees come alive and spring comes into full force. June to September is peak tourist season and the weather is usually pretty spectacular. The winter months are quite mild, rarely going below 0 degrees.
