Reputation of Masaryk University reaches up to the Baltic Sea

Reputation of Masaryk University reaches up to the Baltic Sea

The Czech Republic was not her dream. It was her friends who persuaded her that Masaryk University was a good choice for her for an one-semester exchange Erasmus programme. After three years of studying, 21-year-old student Austè Labonaitè is now looking forward to finishing a bachelor’s degree and starting a master's degree programme in event management.

Barnaul or Brno, so hard to choose...

Barnaul or Brno, so hard to choose...

Barnaul and Brno – these are two cities which mean a lot to Anne Sharova, student of journalism and environmental studies at Masaryk University. Even though they sound similar, the distance from one destination to the other is 7,000 km. Czech people can hardly imagine such a scale…

When amateurs have as crazy fans as national team

When amateurs have as crazy fans as national team

Four three, two, yes! Everyone are shouting and jumping. I am hearing a noise of drums, tubes and clapping. "Champions, champions, champions", fans in white clothes are screaming. Floorball team Mobydicks won the final and you can feel the happiness in the air. Across the hall it is absolutely different. People in blue clothes are sad and just watch. Team Centaurs is second again and it is a big disappointment. No, this is not world floorball championship. This is tiny amateur league in small city in Czech Republic. But for most of this shouting people it means more than Stanley cup.

Lose weight by playing a virtual reality game

Fog lazily rolls over a grassy area. The deadly early-morning peace at one Brno's streets is bleak in the humid air. One man is standing there, his smartphone glued to his hand, silently waiting. Suddenly a car dives into this little part of the universe. He jumps in. A five-member group of heroes are about to start their journey to gain control over local portals.

Instruments that smell like cigars

Instruments that smell like cigars

The small room full of unusual instruments is colourful and cosy. You can hear silent blues from an old radio, there is a sofa and a table with a limo on it. Two young men in their special dress code of red braces, shirt and black pants, welcome me very kindly. I came to hear something about instruments made out of cigar boxes. There are only two places where you can buy them, one here in Brno, and another in Prague.

Storytelling evening in Amsterdam

On a typical Friday night, a group of people is gathering in a book café in the old part of Amsterdam. Once everyone has settled in – about two dozens of people: young and old, those dressed up and those dressed rather casually, men and women – the man who has been welcoming everyone at the entrance asks us to introduce ourselves to the person next to us and exchange couple of facts with them. So what could a rogue folk guitarist and a student of Russian language and literature possibly have in common that led them to meet there?
