BEC Newsletter: Canoeing and mammoths in Brno

BEC monthly newsletter 6/2019


Canoeing and Mammoths in Brno
      If you haven't tried this typical Czech outdoor activity - canoeing - yet, you have a chance at our family afternoon next Saturday. No worries, there'll be instructors nearby. Also, join us for a picnic in July and meet Brno's very own mammoth. Scroll down for more invitations - summer is here and with it comes a rainfall of exciting events. 
That was the 1st Brno Expat Fair.
700 visitors, 70 vendors, 14 expert speakers, services and activities - all that Brno has to offer to foreigners, all at one place. See you next year!
  The audience sees what goes on the stage, but sometimes the view from behind the curtain also tells a story. 
This is the story of Czech Theater, written by Anne Johnson.
  As the parents of two young children, my wife and I are constantly trying to find things to do outside of the house.
