BEC Newsletter: Who are Brno expats? We know now

BEC monthly newsletter 7/2019


Who Are Brno Expats?
      We know the (partial) answer now - you can also have a look. During the summer, we invite you all to a picnic with Brno's mammoth, wine tasting with a sommelier and a tennis tournament for a pineapple.

Over 1,000 foreigners participated in the survey. These are their characteristics. 

  We introduce a new guide for expats: what you can do when family life gets complicated, and who's here to help you.  Londoner Jack Stephens wins BSSWC-3 with his short story “Brno is for Lovers”

  We'll take you on a journey through the classic (and not-so-classic) films of Czech cinema. First in line: a rare example of a Czech horror film.
