A dragon once terrorized this city. The Swedish army attacked it. The buildings have their own stories. And famous people have experienced many legendary events. If you know where to look, Brno still has the symbols related to its history.

That is why we decided to introduce Brno legends to expat children and their families, in their own mother tongues. We wanted to give them the opportunity to enjoy the city through the legends in reading, drawing and exploring. That’s why we published “Brno Legends”, as told by Bruno Zalubil. Expat moms decided to delve into the stories and bring them to life in their own mother language. The illustrations were done by another expat in the style of urban sketching. We also created a short city game – you can visit the places the legends talk about and answer a quiz question. Right now, the book is available only as our promotional gift, but we hope to publish the second edition in a bigger volume and offer it to the general public.
