    Brno Transportation

    Having flown into Brno I needed to get to Vienna and used the train which not only was cheap but only took a couple of hours which not only was overall faster than flying but also takes you into the middle of Vienna only a mile or so from a number of International hotels. The trains run about every two hours on this route and get you into Vienna...

  • Trams MHD

    Brno Transportation

    Use 'salina' (tram) to get around Brno. The best are the old roundish ones (look a bit like dragged from a scrap)- the newer, cubic trams, don't have the feeling and I dislike them. They are like buses on rails. And the brand new Skoda trams suck totally!

    Brno Transportation

    I suppose that the majority of people reading this page and intending to visit Brno will travel there by air, landing at the city's Brno / Turany airport.

    1) Berlin is much closer to Praha than Munich2) It is much cheaper to get from Munich to Praha without advance reservations and similar headaches than from Berlin.The reason for that is that all direct trains from Berlin to Praha are Eurocity trains and the Länderticket is not valid on EC train.

It is not even considered to be cheap because...

    I don't wonder, why there are so many serious crash accidants on the highways. Drivers don't axcept the speed limit 130 km/h / 81 mph. Many times driving a car by this speed I was overtaken. Why? What do other drivers want to say? - Let me go, because my car is better - or - Let me go, because I don't have time?
