Last Saturday we decided to take a trip to the 2nd city of the Czech Republic (size wise at least), Brno. After all that I have heard about the city, my expectations weren't too high. Well, needless to say, as often is the case with low expectations, the city turned out to be a real treat and a great surprise. Cosy Christmas markets had nothing to do with it Brno has a more cosmopolitan feeling than Bratislava; it was cleaner and the people were friendlier as well. The cheese was good and the atmosphere on the streets was great and Christmassy.
