Going to an eye-opening lecture of a morning to switch to traipsing castles in the afternoon and heading out for beer that's cheaper than water of a night. What could be better. It had everything.

Why Muni summer schools?
Our summer schools are taught by enthusiastic lecturers who are experts in their fields. They love to share their knowledge with students and help them gain new perspectives.
A great way to gain a new perspective on a topic you know well or learn something new from an exciting and fun group of teachers.
Kim Darcy, Australia
I was so impressed by how knowledgeable, poised, and approachable the staff as a whole was; it was truly quite an impressive collection of instructors.

Central Europe is a beautiful region with spectacular landscape and rich history. Why only sit in class when you can experience everything at first hand? We take advantage of Brno’s short distance from major European cities and go on multiple field trips during the course.
The cultural excursions we did to cities outside of Brno were fantastic. They were really well planned and gave us just enough guidance and free time to explore the cities on our own without feeling totally lost.
Emma Hansen, University of Kansas, USA
My highlights were the weekend trips to Budapest, Vienna and Prague as we saw so many beautiful places and learnt so much about that part of Europe.
Jessica McGrath, Griffith University, Australia
A historical city with a huge student population, Brno is a unique place to live and study. It has something to offer for everyone: rich history and architecture, wide selection of restaurants, cafés and bars, modern sport facilities, a lake just outside of town... You will be surprised how quickly this charming city will become your home away from home.
Brno is a great "homebase" as it is not too touristy but still has lots of history and places to go and explore.
Everett Montalvo, Kansas State University, USA
So many activities and they were absolutely incredible. There was so much to offer and all relatable to our course.
Daina Reid, University of Wollongong, Australia
We have a small group of local students who are there for you after you finish class. They are there to help you discover Brno but they can also help you get acquainted with washing machines or public transportation. They will be your buddies to help you feel at home in Brno.
The highlight was definitely meeting the people and the staff who welcomed us with open arms. We wouldn't have had enjoyed ourselves so much if you weren't there. A big thanks to the student assistants and the teaching staff - you truly made the three weeks in Brno feel like home!
Shivaanya Kanapathy, Deakin University, Australia
The student assistants were all really nice people! Very grateful for having them show us around everywhere and helping us with minor issues like where to buy things!
Nicholas Cecil, Deakin University, Australia

Brno in summer
Summer is a particularly beautiful season in Central Europe. Czechs love to take advantage of the warm and sunny weather and transform the city to enjoy it to the fullest.
Brno has a picturesque historical center which livens up with crowds of people in summer. There are food festivals, coffee stands, vegetable markets… People go social dancing, or watch movies in open-air theaters. On any night there are scores of concerts or shows to choose from.
And when you want to take a break from city life, you can go swimming in the Prýgl lake at the edge of the city or take a boat across the lake to the nearby castle of Veveří. To the north of Brno, the beautiful caves with the Macocha gorge are one of the most attractive natural wonders in the region. You are also within spitting distance from the best wine-producing region in the country so go and taste local wine and take a walk through the vineyards.
