Brno, this is not only MotoGP. It is a Moravian capital with many sights to match. Here are five absolute essentials for your first trip:

3. Marvel at the Brno’s underground, which promises unforgettable experiences, such as the Labyrinth under the Vegetable Market, the Mint Master’s Cellar and the second-largest ossuary in Europe.

4. Get a spectacular view from Old Town Hall with the fabled dragon of Brno in its passageway and historical halls.

5. Hang out at the romantic Veveří Castle, towering over the Brno Reservoir in the city’s countryside.
