We couldn't do a fair, so we had
We hadn't been able to hold our Brno Expat Fair for 2 years in a row but we were done postponing - we created an event during which you could find out about the great things that this city has to offer, and still stay safe.
We organised Brno Expat City Days, 7-19 June, during which you could play a city game on the streets of Brno and visit an open-air expo.
The game is still open! Play here.
a trail through Brno
You might know where to find the Brno dragon or what a šalina is, but this game will challenge your Brno-knowledge on a different level: you'll need your wit and navigational skills, not only on the streets but through the maze of the whole Czech experience.
Follow a trail through the city and crack the quiz questions if you know what it really takes to live in Brno and discover many interesting places along the way. You can compete alone or in a small team, you can do it all in one day or take a whole week, as you wish.
14-19 June 2021
Instead of a closed space at Tržnice, you could learn about all the prospective employers, reliable services, cultural institutions, sport facilities and exciting leisure opportunities in open air and with minimal contact. The 'Living in Brno' exhibition was displayed at Moravské square between 14-20 June.
On Saturday 19 June, the project culminated with an opportunity to meet with our consultants live, pick up a prize from the CITY GAME, and enjoy the summer day with us.
