In the middle of winter, when it’s not so comfy to walk outside, join us together with Don Sparling on a virtual walk through history and learn about Brno’s contributions to the world.

Since the nineteenth century, Brno has taken pride in its international reputation as the source of whole range of exports – textiles, machinery of all kinds, weapons, tractors, hot-air balloons, electron microscopes … The list is almost endless.

But one kind of export is often forgotten – people. Since the Middle Ages, generations of Brno-born individuals have left the city for the wider world, and there many of them became famous for their contributions to the arts and sciences, economics, medicine, engineering, religious life and many other fields.

In this webinar, you’ll find out fascinating details about a couple of dozen famous Brno “exports”, among them eight individuals linked to the illustrations accompanying this teaser. Any guesses? 🙂
