While it may lack Prague's energy, Brno still has plenty to offer at night. A strong cultural program dominates, with a local theater and symphony offering world-class entertainment. Go to www.brno.cz to find out what's going on at major venues, or visit the Informacní Centrum to get tickets.

For the young at heart, the Metro Music Bar (Postovská 6, Alfa-Pasáz; tel. 515-533-452; www.metromusic.cz; daily 6pm-3am) is the place to dance. The program changes daily from live bands to DJs and back. Otherwise, make like a Czech and go to any number of local pubs, which are located on nearly every street corner. Start out at the Pivnice Pegas (Jakubská 4; tel. 542-210-104) for microbrews just off the main square, and from there just wander the streets. You'll go no more than 2 minutes in any direction before another pub tempts you.
