Tourists, who don’t experience Brno by night, don’t experience Brno!
Go downtown after sunset and you are sure not to miss. You can dance the night away in music and dance clubs of various genres, stop by a traditional Czech pub for a “cold one”, chat away the night at a stylish cocktail lounge or discover “truth in wine” in one of the many local cellars and wineries.
The rule applies doubly during warm summer nights. The city squares are full of summer terraces, not just beer gardens. A great evening is a sure thing when it’s spent outside on one of Brno’s many cozy squares with someone friendly to talk to and something good to drink. Some of the hotspots include Veveří street, lined with bars and restaurants, the main square náměstí Svobody (Freedom Square) which is the city’s instersection for clubbers and barhoppers and the square at the church of St. Jacob, which has come to life with many hip new joints.
Brno offers nighttime cultural experiences as well. Visitors can see a play or movie inside or under the stars. Concerts are held in music clubs, cafes and outside in the streets or intimate courtyards. Brno Museum Night and Church Night are amazing events held in the spring. They give tourists and locals the opportunity to visit exhibitions and sacred spaces in a special nighttime atmosphere. Fireworks light up the sky during the Ignis Brunensis festival held in May and June. Over 89 000 young people study at Brno universities. Festivals of all kinds are held for them year-round (such as the student spring festivals Studentský Majáles and Čarodějáles, the Brněnský lunapark coffeehouse-theatre-tour and many more).
A unique experience that is part of nighttime Brno is the ride home. Brno night buses are famous throughout the country and every hour (on Fridays and Saturdays every 30 minutes) offer passengers a swift ride home from the main train station at normal daily public transport rates (www.dpmb.cz).
