Lasergame isn’t an individual game. It's a team event with friend, collegues or with new people on a free evening. It's ideal for women, no age restrictions at all.
Sailing on the Brno dam
You will enjoy a beautiful cruise to the picturesque Veveří Castle and back again. Boat transport on the Brno dam operates regularly from April to October, according to a fixed timetable and regardless of the weather. The first cruise ship set sail on the surface of the "Brno Sea" on May 5, 1946. All ships, popularly called "steamers", are electrically powered, so they are almost inaudible and do not polute the environment with flue gases. The scope of transport makes shipping in Brno unique in the Czech Republic, at other dams there is usually only holiday traffic and with a significantly lower density of connections.
Enjoy fun and gain new knowledge in the great pubquiz. You will be challenged by 51 questions spanning the globe and covering every topic from A to Z. 10 topics await, ranging from the classic to the esoteric to the bizarre. You and your team will answer questions that stretch the very limits of a general knowledge quiz, and you're guaranteed to leave the bar knowing more than ever before! There are 5 rounds, each with two topics and 10 questions. The moderator asks the questions, and the teams write down the answers (or their best guess!) The moderator grades the quiz, keeps a running tally of the scores, and then on to the next round!
Brno Observatory and Planetarium
The largest 3D stereoscopic planetarium in Central Europe - The new installation of the Brno Observatory and Planetarium offers a completely different arrangement of space-time from October 2018. It literally breaks through space and changes the flow of time. Thanks to the projection on a unique surface in the form of a seventeen-meter hemisphere, visitors feel that they are in the middle of an exciting story. The audience is surrounded by a world of amazing discoveries, from which they literally turn their heads.
Digitarium in 2D - the most modern hybrid planetarium is one of the most modern and largest so-called hybrid planetariums in Europe. The unique device allows you to "fly" through space, display the surfaces of various cosmic bodies, but also mediates other scientific visualizations. The principle of the whole projection system is in a way simple: it consists of several data projectors which, with the help of special optics, project the image onto the entire surface in the shape of a hemisphere with a diameter of 17 meters. These are then supplemented by several additional devices and the necessary software.
