Brno travel is possible via plane, train, car, or boat. If you prefer to fly, your Brno travel will likely lead you to Brno-Turany International Airport. The airport offers flights to London, Moscow, and Prague, and provides travelers with a frequent public shuttle that connects the airport with regional and national bus stations and the Brno Central Station located downtown near Old Town. If you’re looking for the best value, Brno travel by train is your best option. Train service is available from Vienna, Austria, Ostrava and Bratislava, Slovakia, as well as many smaller cities throughout the region. The city serves as a major stop on the Prague to Vienna route and is serviced by all Eurocity and Intercity trains. The Integrated Transport System of the Southern Moravia Region offers service throughout Brno as well as the Southern Moravia Region and passengers can take advantage of train, tram, bus, and trolley travel using a single ticket. If you’re willing to pay more for the flexibility to explore the country on your own schedule, you’ll want to rent a car. National highways are well-maintained and require a toll sticker. Many travelers will fly into Prague, rent a car there, and drive the 125 miles to Brno. A less conventional means of Brno travel is by boat. Visitors can board cruisers at Veverska Bityska during the summer months and cross the Brno dam lake to Brno-Bystrc. A scenic cruise is a great way to introduce yourself to the many attractions in Brno and get a better idea of what you’d like to spend time exploring in more depth.
