Eat something green on Maundy Thursday (or drink green beer).
One of the traditions says that you are supposed to eat something green on Maundy Thursday. If you aren’t a huge fan of spinach or green beans, Starobrno brewery has an Easter special for you – green beer. They brew it specially for Easter (you shouldn’t be able to buy it any other day than Maundy Thursday) and it’s production is a secret, all we know that the green color is achieved by adding some herbal infusion. Anyway, it’s a good alternative to spinach.

For instance I’m sure you haven’t heard a Brno-born utter the word “tramvaj” for a tram. A true Brno soul would always say “šalina“.
Take an evening stroll around the centre of the Moravian capital with us on the first day of November and explore places of interest and hidden secrets of Brno which you probably haven’t noticed yet.

Together, we’ll take a peaceful walk in the park, visit a few edifying museum exhibitions and do some potentially dangerous sports. If you don’t feel daring, you can only watch, I promise. Are you ready?
