Explore Brno


This trail with twelve stops follows the history, personages and places associated with the phenomenon of how Brno came to be dubbed ‘the Moravian Manchester’.

It offers a unique look at almost three centuries during which Brno was one of the world’s leading industrial textile towns. In the background of this extraordinary success, however, are individual human stories which will be introduced by the author of the trail, writer Kateřina Tučková.

The Moravian Manchester trail arose as part of the Meeting Brno festival based on Kateřina Tučková’s book Fabrika – příběh textilních baronů z moravského Manchesteru (Factory – The Story of the Textile Barons of the Moravian Manchester), published by Host for the Brno: Moravian Manchester exhibit in 2014 at the Moravian Gallery in Brno.
