With more than 400 000 residents, Brno is the Czech Republic’s second largest city after Prague. Brno is the most centrally-located city in Central Europe, which makes transport to and from Brno extremely easy – there are frequent bus, rail and air services to other major European cities including Vienna, Budapest, Krakow, Berlin and London.
Many global companies and large research centres are based in Brno. All this gives rise to an environment in which every skilled worker can thrive and pursue a successful career.
Moreover, Brno prides itself on its ability to help develop young ideas through a rich network of businesses and innovators, four different technology incubators and significant financial support from both local and foreign sources.
Brno boasts 10 universities (5 public, 1 state and 4 private) serving a total of nearly 70 000 students (17% of the city’s population), one in five of whom is a foreigner.
This student population not only attracts new opportunities in the form of prestigious academic competitions, public projects and conferences, but it also maintains a fresh, lively and welcoming atmosphere.
Surrounded by forests, Brno is more than a friendly and hospitable city with more than 50 public parks. Its 24/7 public transport system includes 11 tram lines, 13 trolleybus lines, 51 bus lines and 1 boat line, so you can get virtually anywhere you need without a car.
The Czech Republic was recently ranked the 8th safest country in the world. This is also thanks to the system of care for residents and newcomers.
In addition, medical care is very affordable, and with the highest ratio of doctors to patients in the country, Brno is an ideal place to take advantage of that.
