BRNO EXPAT TRAM – shalina joyride

October 23rd 2011, 3 pm, station of departure Pionýrská, terminal station Mendlovo náměstí

We invite you to another event prepared especially for you, Brno expats. Based on numerous questions and requests gathered through time and linking on to our event in June, we want to present further possibilities for leisure in Brno, available to adults, children, families… everyone.

This time however, you will be able to see some of the places or try some of the activities yourselves. And, we will actually take you to locations you might not discover immediately. A very special vehicle full of interesting information, a tram all our own – or „šalina“ as we say in Brno – will take you for a ride, and you don’t have to worry about meeting a ticket inspector! ;-)

Why should you hop on our tram?

  • Explore Brno and its hidden attraction
  • Find out about interesting leisure activities
  • Meet Brno Expat Centre founder Don Sparling
  • Have a cup of coffee in Cafe Era and cup of tea in teahouse Starý Dvůr
  • Enjoy a ride through the city in our typical yet special vehicle

Starting at 3 p.m., you will board a tram which will take you through Brno and finish for a conclusion at Mendlovo náměstí tram stop for a cup of tea in local tea house Starý Dvůr, sometime around 7 p.m. Drinks and refreshments will be available.

Meeting point: tram stop Pionýrská / corner of Lužánky park   (find on a map)

To participate, book your seat at, stating your name and occupation. The ride is free of cost.

We are looking forward to meeting you on board!

    Hello Huili,

    The number of reservations already exceeds the seat capacity of a tram but you can still join us if you don’t mind standing when cruising. We will get off at several stops so we won’t be on a tram all the time. I can not guarantee you seats, but I can guarantee you will have a good time…

    Hi 🙂

    My name is Ekaterina and I have the same question as Huili. Me and my friend didn’t know till the last moment if we are able to join the trip. For that reason, we didn’t make reservation. I hope it is fine if we just come and will stay in the tram 😉
