“We spent two wonderful and hot weeks in this neat home near Brno. Thanks to the good communication with Hana before and throughout the exchange we had everything we needed and felt very much at home. The surroundings are very enjoyable with the dam lake, the hills and forests. Close by is Veveri Castle we explored by boat, about 10 min by car is a big swimming pool our children wanted to visit every day and we saw some of the city, especially famous functionalistic architecture. We had a great holiday, our home was as we left it and we can highly recommend a swap with this family!”

Where is it?
A forest is a 10-minute walk from our house, as well as the Brno dam lake, a nice place for both summer and winter activities. Brno itself has a truly strategic position for visitors from distant parts of the globe to see a lot from Central Europe. Prague is a two-hour drive (200 km), Vienna even less (130 km), and similarly the capital of Slovakia Bratislava (120 km). There are a number of great UNESCO World Heritage sites within close vicinity: the functionalist Villa Tungenhat in Brno, Valtice-Lednice area, the towns of Kroměří¸, Olomouc, Třebíč and Telč, the Zelená Hora church in ´ďár. In addition, there are old romantic castles and spectacular limestone caves with a deep abyss (Macocha).
The town of Brno does not boast of architecture as beautiful as Prague (apart from functionalism, which is quite unique here), but it is a charming city of culture: Brno Philharmonic Orchestra, the Opera, chamber music ensembles, outstanding choirs, musical theatre, a number of exhibition halls, a lively jazz scene.
Activities: cycling, hiking, swimming, skating, cross-country skiing (downhill is a lot better in the Alps in Austria, with the nearest resorts some 4 hours drive). Golf course 5 min drive.
Wine cellars and generally wine culture, great beer, nice countryside.
