The Czech Republic legalized same-sex unions in 2006, but there’s yet to be a thriving LGBTQ+ scene outside the capital city. Brno presents many opportunities for travelers to enjoy the country’s rich culture, dining and scenery, but not much in the way of activities for the community.
Brno has only a handful of gay bars, though they each attract a decent crowd. Gibon is the oldest in the city, but has something of a seedy reputation among locals. Greater crowds can be found at both But Bar and Club H46, which feature music and a vibrant atmosphere on the weekends.
Jean Paul’s Bistro is arguably one of the best restaurants in the city for a midday meal and features some delicious Italian fare. Retro Consistorium, on the other hand, offers one of the city’s most extensive wine collections and is perfect if you’re seeking a more upscale atmosphere. Both often attract a younger crowd and welcoming atmosphere where LGBTQ+ travelers can feel at home.
Be sure to spend some time enjoying the beautiful Brno Lake. The local hot spot features a beach, tons of biking and hiking trails, and is within walking distance of a popular zoological garden featuring polar bears. It’s also home to the esteemed Veveří Castle, one of the largest castles in the Czech Republic. You’ll also find a relaxing visit to Náměstí Svobody, the city’s main square, to be a great option for shopping, dining and mingling with the locals.

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
