Hi, Thank you for visiting Brno Day Trips. Let me introduce myself briefly and what Brno Day trips is about. My name is Lenka and I am Slovak living in Brno since 2011. I work in tourism business since I finished my studies at the university in Slovakia. For several years I have been arranging vacations for tourists who decide to visit Central Europe. I like my work very much. I am in contact with tourists from around the world and I do not have to move from my home thanks to the Internet. Yes, it is big advantage to be in contact with the whole world from your living room but after some time you realize that you miss talking with your clients face to face to share their impressions from their vacations you have arranged for them. But I could not figure out how this can be arranged when my base is in Brno while you, dear traveler, travel across Europe and almost every day you are in different country. And this stage brings me to another point of this introductory blog.

Within last years I have taken many private excursions out of Brno during my leisure time and I have introduced my favourite places  to my friends and to my family who come to visit me. They all were surprised what beautiful places are hidden in Moravia they have not heard about before even they live in relatively short distance from Brno. I have realized that Moravia has so much to offer and that Brno is excellent starting point located not far away from all main tourist attractions. One day while I was thinking about upcoming family visit an idea emerged. What if I make a list of my favourite trips and activities I do with my friends and offer it as private day trips in and out of Brno for those who individualy visit Brno? The more I was thinking of it the more I liked the idea. I could still do my current job but at the same time make my own trips and meet you in person. So I started to prepare myself to become a guide. I attended local class to get the certificate and I become to learn Czech history, art, culture and so on. It took me 2 years while the idea has matured to this point where we are now.

So let me again welcome you to Brno Day Trips, my own project where you can find Out of Brno excursions. My main goal is to present you, according to my opinion, most interesting and beautiful places around Brno but not in immediate proximity only. I have included even remote places which can be still reached within a day. The offer you can currently see now is not complete. Even though the area I want to cover is not so big there are still places waiting to be discovered and I hope you will be my inspiration too. Do not hesitate to contact me with any suggestion for visiting you have read about in your traveller book and it is not listed in the offer.

I sincerely hope, that this website will inspire you to stay a bit longer in Brno as you originally planned to discover Moravia with me or on your own. For more tips please follow me on Instagram or Facebook.

Enjoy your time in Brno!
