What do our employees say about Brno?

Jaclyn Quin from Australia

"My favourite things about Brno are the relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and how people from Brno embrace the outdoors."

Gabriel Demo from Slovakia

"During my scientific career, I have lived in various places around the world: Brno, Grenoble, London, Washington D.C. and Worcester. Nevertheless, I have always loved life in Brno and I am extremely happy to have finally returned. I am a passionate tourist, so I am glad that I can enjoy the nature that surrounds Brno again."

Agnieszka Szmitkowska from Poland

"When I came to Brno first for Erasmus exchange I felt very much like at home. That`s why I came back and I live here ever since- already 7 years! What I like the most? It's a small-big city: has a lot to offer and does not overwhelm. And the international community is really amazing."
