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). 

More than 200 expats from 57 different countries replied to our questionnaire. Let’s have a look at some of the results! We asked which types of measures and restrictions pose the highest challenge in their current life. Hardly surprisingly, the regulations limiting travelling in and out of the country placed at the top of the list, often described as insufferable. The second place belongs to the restriction of cultural events and entertainment. As such, limited culture&entertainment placed higher than closed shops or restaurants. We also asked whether the situation made expats consider leaving Brno and moving elsewhere. We are happy to see that a majority (62%) responded with a clear no.

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.
