As I sit in my office here in Brno, I can see the twin landmarks of this small city situated in Moravia, the southern part of the Czech Republic. The first is Brno Castle sitting atop a natural hill and the second sitting on top of another nearby hill is the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul. Brno sprawls across a valley and is surrounded by higher elevations. It is a beautiful city that is full of opulent early 1900’s architecture that speaks to the golden era of the Czech Republic. Back then, wealthy merchants tried to outdo each other in building their new homes leaving us with a legacy of solid buildings that have now been converted in apartments and offices. It is like a mini-Prague in many ways.
