Meet Brno - December Sunday in nature

In the project Meet Brno in Brno for you, we decided to show newcomers in Brno beautiful nature. On December 20, we met the participants at the last bus stop to Mariánské údolí. We headed in the direction of Jeníkův mlýn. During the walk we got to know each other and talked about different topics.
