Traditions you’ll fall in love with
Traditions in a big city? Anything’s possible in Brno! The entire region of South Moravia is steeped in folklore and Brno is no exception. The city’s long history of classical music add to its already rich culture. After all, this is where Leoš Janáček drew inspiration for and composed his world-renowned melodies. We can find traditions in various local municipalities which still hold, or even recreate what used to be local village feasts, together with other customs. And local folk ensembles as well as tunes played by dulcimer bands remind us of them. We can find them at the bottom of a glass of wine in any of the many local wine bars.
Take in the authentic local atmosphere with us!
