You can find all kinds of supermarkets in Brno i.e. Tesco, Billa, Delvita, Ikea, Olympia, Globus (means "globe"), as they are worldwide. But you know how they encourage you to buy all those things that you dont need for a good price..
What to buy: Until the end of August 2005 there will be an exhibition of witches in Olympia. In the area between the Main Bus Station and Main Trainstation, there is a big shopping area called Vankovka. The first hour of car parking is free of charge there.
What to pay: the prices are rising as a result of the membership in the EU..
