Activities to recharge your batteries

Take a breath, relax, and have some rest. Feel free to stroll through numerous local parks or work up a sweat at a number of sports venues, all just a stone’s throw away on foot or by tram. City parks will tempt you to relax or do some sports, like Lužánky where people enjoy running year-round. The Brno Dam (also called Prýgl) invites you for a visit any time of year. Hop on a bike or walk all the way to Veveří Castle and you might run into a group of winter swimmers along the way. Outdoor swimming pools are long closed, but coming frosts make for great ice skating, and there’s a rink right under the iconic sculpture of Jobst of Moravia. Crowds of people not exactly your thing? Then venture into the deep woods surrounding Brno to see Hády, Stránská skála, or the Holedná game enclosure where you can escape the everyday hustle and bustle of city life.


Enjoy physical activities. No limits

“Lužánky is the oldest public city park in the Czech lands as well as a Czech cultural sight.”

Hády Hády

Beautiful autumn hikes

Nature reserves right on the border of the city?

Hády is visible from the very centre of the city, and apart from protected plants and animals, there are lakes, llamas, and great views of Brno.

Do you know what ‘Prýgl’ means?

It’s the unofficial name everyone in Brno uses to call the city’s huge reservoir. Besides swimming, you can also enjoy a boat trip to visit Veveří Castle.

Water too cold for you? No worries!

Tempted to enjoy a dip in the reservoir? Or would you prefer the comfort of a municipal outdoor swimming pool? There’s a few to choose from…
