General info

To stay in the know, we definitely recommend joining the many active Facebook groups through which foreigners in Brno daily communicate. The group to start with is ‘Living in Brno’. For others, check the guide ‘Useful Links‘.

Regular Events

We – the Brno Expat Centre – organize free-of-charge events every month – both expert seminars and informal meetings, trips and sports tournaments. Keep an eye on what’s coming up.

Members of the international communities in Brno get together regularly, too. English in Brno is an informal society of English speakers – students, teachers, foreigners, and locals. They meet every week at different venues and times for an ‘English Meeting’.

On a monthly basis, you can build up contacts with Brno expats at events of Internations Brno, Coachsurfing and Foreigners (an agency).

Institutes

Brno is home to cultural institutes such as British Council, Alliance française and Österreich Institut. They provide language courses and cultural activities.

If you’d like to mingle with a younger crowd, universities have their international student clubs – Masaryk University, University of Technology and Mendel University. And there also is the Erasmus Student Network.

Venues

You are certain to bump into foreigners at bars such as East Village, The Immigrant and Clubwash. The last two, together with U Palečka, organize pub quiz nights in English. Expats also like to hang out around the public electric grill in Lužánky park – just grab a few friends and something to BBQ!

Business

As of now, there aren’t any business oriented organized meetings. We hope to change that in the near future by organizing BEC business meetings with enterprising expats. But until then, you can get acquainted with this FB group: Brno Entrepreneurs.
