Being the "second city" of the Czech Republic, Brno usually gets the short end of the stick, particularly when compared with Prague, the Czech Republic's capital. Brno is smaller, it doesn't have any mediaeval architecture, it has fewer museums and galleries, and it doesn't have a metro. In Czech (mostly in Prague I think), you occasionally even hear people describe undesired results or outcomes as "mistakes like Brno." But it really isn't so bad (or boring) in Brno. The city is just less well known. So in addition to broadcasting my life to you, I'm hoping that this blog provides a testament to another reality: Brno is a burgeoning metropolis with an exciting and vibrant cultural life. (Of course, I'll be mostly focusing on music since I'm chauvinistic that way, but nonetheless...)
There's always the possibility that this blog will be proof that Brno really is boring, but I'll withold any more musings on that topic for the moment.
