Brno makes for a Good Change

After the guerrilla assault of tourists in, Prague we moved on to Brno. This is the Czech Republic’s second city, but when comparing it side by side with Prague, you’d think you were on another world.
The biggest, most hugest, astronomical difference in Brno is the fact that tourists are in far fewer numbers. The train that we were on had an destination of Budapest and once stopping in Brno, we saw that the vast majority of folks were probably taking the train all the way to the end as we were one of the very few people getting off in Brno. But this was great. It’s true that Brno is quite small and with a compact center you can see in a short time, but it really is a place to relax. There are a number of sites in Brno to see, but obviously as Brno is a much smaller town than Prague, there are fewer sites. This also means that there aren’t very many brainless, sightseeing guidebook-bound tourists bumbling around, checking off another destination on their ‘To See Before I Die’ list.
Two to three days are really all that you need in Brno, but for those wishing to kick back for a bit, they might want to stay longer. Prices on food and drink seem to be quite reasonable and the best part is that when you get ready to move on, the train station actually accepts credit cards. This is again a huge contrast to Prague, where they happily put up the credit card stickers (every major one in fact), but don’t accept a single one.
If a tad more interested, I have a Brno gallery up for perusal.
