The city Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Rebublic. The city can be proud of its numerous landmarks, which are proof of its rich 800-year history. The city became prominent in Europian history during the Thirty Year´s War, as it was the only town in Central Europe able to defend itself against siege by the Swedish army. Funtionalist architecture contributed to giving the city its appearance as a modern metropolis.
