Why doing a CELTA course in Brno?
Brno is the second largest city after Prague in the Czech Republic. The city is an important region for economy, culture and wine production.

Being less crowded than Prague it is still a good place for rest.
Brno is situated in a picturesque countryside, surrounded on three sides by wooded hills and opening to the Southern Moravian lowlands to the south of the city. In the north, the city is guarded by the foothils of the Drahany and Bohemian-Moravian ranges. The city itself lies in the basin of the Svratka and Svitava rivers. Geographically, Brno is part of the Danube Basin and has many historical ties to the Austrian capital of Vienna (Wien).
