A report about Brno, its people and Czech language through German eyes
From August to October stayed for the second time german students in Brno. They came here with the Kafka Programme of the german Hertie foundation to do a traineeship in several institutions. Two of them worked at the Masaryk University in the Office of International Studies and in the Office for Marketing and Public Relation of the Rectorate. I was one of these two students got to know the PR-work of the university.
The Masaryk University was for me quite impressive because of the beautiful buildings it has, which are mostly in a very modern style in the inside, and because of the big project of the new Bohunice Campus which looked very futuristic and interesting to me. But as well the electronic information system of the university showed that it is a step forward compared to other universities I know.
All of our group enjoyed the stay in Brno very much. Probably it had something to do with the amount of beer we drank in the pubs and restaurants of the town and the interesting music we saw here. But it was as well because it is always possible to discover something new in this city which owns so many buildings with interesting architecture, theaters, art galeries and a lot more. On the weekends we often travelled to other moravian towns like Telč, Třebič or Olomouc and experienced by that the other parts of this region.
At the end of our stay I will be probably a bit sad to leave but I will take a lot of impressions of Brno and it’s people with me and hopefully return to this place again.
