Now, everything can be reached quickly from the Technical Museum in Brno. Two steps – and you’re at Špilberk Castle. Three – and you are standing at the Brno Dam. Five steps will get you to the autodrome. Another five steps, but in the opposite direction, will bring you to the Tuřany airport. All this is possible thanks to the Giant Map of Brno project.

It is made up of a special orthophotograph map of Brno and its neighbourhood, stretching over 34 m2. Depicting a scaled area of 300 m2, the map is situated on the ground in front of the aircraft engine exposition. „We wanted to show Brno from a completely new perspective. Make no mistake, it’s not just a bird’s eye view. The whole map is an amazing time machine. Brno boasts plentiful historical industrial sites and the map shows not only the existing but also defunct or abandoned buildings such as factories, railway sidings and water structures,“ said Josef Večeřa, Deputy Director of the Technical Museum in Brno about the project.
