The Students Are Back

This past week I've noticed that the trams are more crowded. I've also seen more young people out & about. It looks like the students are returning to Brno. There are six universities here with a medical school.

Masaryk University
Janáček Academy of Performing Arts
Brno University of Technology
Mendel University of Agriculture and Forestry
University Of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences
University of Defence

There are about 85,000 students here. That's huge!! Brno only has about 400,000 residents.

The cool thing I heard yesterday is that when school starts the trams will run more frequently. The trams will come every 3-4 minutes instead of 7-10 minutes.

  1. The autumn semester of most of the universities begins on 21st September. After this time there will be much more life in the center after sunset :-)
