How to get to Brno city by car/motorbike

 

Brno can be reached via the D1 motorway from Prague (210 km) or via the D2 motorway from Bratislava (137 km).

Keep in mind that in the Czech Republic, firstly, lights must be used throughout the day and night all year round. Secondly, it is illegal to use a mobile phone while driving, unless it is operated hands-free. Thirdly, without exception, it is prohibited to drink alcohol before driving a car.

Although being a big fan of Valentino Rossi, please remember that there are some speed limits on Czech roads. In built-up and residential areas - towns and villages, the speed limit is 50 km/h (30 mph), the speed limit outside towns and municipalities is 90 km/h (55 mph). The speed limit on motorways outside residential areas is 130 km/h (80 mph). In towns and villages, you can travel down the motorway at up to 80 km/h (50 mph).

Using the highway while driving to MotoGP Brno, you must have a vignette. This may be purchased at several places, such as petrol stations, at border crossings and specialised shops for drivers. A motorway vignette for 10 days costs approximately 310 CZK (11 EUR).

Parking

As visitors, you are not allowed to park your car in the inner centre of Brno.

In places where on the vertical traffic sign there is an orange stripe, you can park only for 30 minutes for free. Parking for longer than 30 minutes is paid (in the parking meter or through an online mobile app.).

You can, however, park in several paid car parks in the city centre, and there is an official park-and-ride facility on the outskirts of Brno not far from the Ústřední hřbitov (Central Cemetery) tram stop. To check their availability, please click here.

Another popular option is parking the car at a supermarket and walking to the nearest bus, trolleybus, or tram stop nearby.
