Welcome to April’s Kam v Brně / Where in Brno. Spring is here and that means the meadows and hills of Brno are alive with blossom and wildflowers. Usually, we would recommend a trip to the blooming Almond Groves of Hustopece, but that may not be possible this year. Closer to home, a trip to the Kamenný Vrch nature trail to see the pasqueflower meadows (Koniklecová louka) in full flower is highly recommended, as are the excellent Nature Trails in Bohunice and Kohoutovice. 

Times remain tough for restaurants and clubs, so your ongoing patronage of their windows and delivery services is vital to keep these businesses ticking over and give us all some where to go and celebrate once this is all behind us. It is really important too, to continue to support the musicians and artists that make our city what it is. Please keep a close eye on the facebook pages and websites of your favourite events, musicians, artists, venues and festivals. They are all trying to adapt to this new virtual world and need our support along the way.  

Red Hill Alert is an initiative of young Brno artists and musicians, creating multi-modal art, music and performance events online live from Červený Kopec and other locations. Their online video and musical events called Proud, have become the hot ticket in Brno’s underground.

Comedius Open Mic Online is a roaring success, with dozens of fabulous acts on the final Friday of each month. fb.com/czechcomedius – perform or just sit back and enjoy the talent that Brno has to offer.

Each week on Radio R or later streamed on mixcloud, Simon, aka the Shiny Beast, takes us on a voyage of discovery and adventure through the lesser trodden by-ways of music. For those still mourning the death of English radio DJ, John Peel, this is a soothing balm – mixcloud.com/theshinybeast.

Blossoms abound!

Welcome to April’s Kam v Brně / Where in Brno.

Spend 15 meaningful minutes in a forest

Spending time in nature has been found to promote health. ‘Forest Mind’ is an innovation system of mental skills exercises designed to utilize and intensify the natural healing effects of forests.

What I’m Drinking

Well, this is it – My last article of ‘What I’m Drinking’ for KAM Brno. In writing this monthly column, I hope that I have been a guiding light in your Czech wine journey.

Brno Expats and Lockdown – how are we faring?

On 12 March, it’d been a whole year since the CR declared the 1st state of emergency. For this rather grim anniversary, we asked foreigners living in Brno how they’ve been dealing with the challenges of the past year (and of today).

Online Programmes Offered by Museums and Galleries

Even these days there are still several ways to enjoy art. The first one is the online collections that museums and galleries offer. So from the comfort of your own home you can admire, for example, the digitized painting Head of Medusa, which returned to the Moravian Gallery in Brno this March.
