Its capital is Brno, the Czech Republic’s second largest city, centre of judiciary, a university town and a Central European trade fair centre. The region is well known for its deep cultural and historical roots and it is a place of many important architectural monuments in all architectural styles. It is also well known for its vivid folklore traditions and wine production. The region is strategically located at the crossroad of rail and road routes which are connecting west, south, east and north parts of Europe.
