Tram Party - Spring 2022

Did you know that the first (horse-drawn) tram in Brno set off on August 17, 1869, at 7 p.m.? The route led from today’s Moravian Square to Semilasso in the Královo Pole district. Since then, the tram has become one of the most (if not the most) popular means of transport around Brno – there are approximately 177 trams put to use on a daily basis. And what would be more iconic and symbolic than to have a party in one of these trams?

The Ball Culture of Czech Republic

The first thing that pops in mind when you say "a ball" (in this case not the round thing you use when playing a sport) is usually a grand dance ball we see in fairytales or the very famous Vienna ball. In the Czech Republic, balls are very popular. Most are organized in celebration of final year high school students, who also get their sashes during a special ceremony. Those are not the only types of balls, however - we also have special balls - organized by firefighters, a student association,  for charity, and so on. Even small villages have their own balls, held in gymnasiums for example.
