Czech out Brno for a cheaper, calmer city break :-: the Guardian
Booming Brno, with its creativity, history and subterranean mystery, is the perfect antidote to overrun Prague and its forests of selfie sticks
The phenomenon of “overtourism” has been in the news a lot this summer. How cities such as Prague and Vienna are swamped with visitors, restaurants booked weeks in advance, bars rammed with outsiders taking selfies. But about halfway between those two honeypots is another city also served by budget airlines from the UK that is far from swamped. In fascinating and surprising Brno, getting a table on a Saturday night is no problem, and it’s rare to hear anything but Czech in the streets.
